Buff Orpington

The origins of the Buff Orpington chicken breed can be traced back to England in the 1880s. William Cook, an avid poultry breeder living in the county of Kent, set out to create the ultimate dual purpose fowl – one that would produce both lots of eggs and good meat. Through careful crossbreeding of heritage breeds like the Cochin, Dorking, and Minorca, Cook developed the Orpington breed. The final touch was breeding them to have a soft buff color, resulting in the Buff Orpington chickens we know and love today.

Brahma

The Brahma chicken is one of the largest chicken breeds, known as the ‘king of chickens’. They are both meat and egg-laying chicken. They also make great backyard pets. They have become more well-known in the last few years after a video of a giant Brahma rooster went viral, with millions viewing the video in disbelief at how large a chicken can be! Let’s look closer at these gentle giants… The Brahma was first bred in the 1800’s. In China, a Malay and Cochin were crossbred to create a Shanghai chicken. This chicken was then taken to the USA by sailors. The Shanghai was bred in America with the Grey Chittagong from India. The name ‘Brahma’ is derived from the river Brahmaputra in India. Until the 1930s, the Brahma was one of the most popular chickens for meat due to its size. However, as industrial farming grew, Brahmas became unfavorable as they could take up to two years to reach maturity. Breeds that matured faster became more profitable for their meat. Brahmas are now steadily growing in popularity again, this time as backyard pets.

Silkies are also known for their calm, friendly temperament, which makes them exceptionally great pets for homes that have children.
