The Jubilee Orpington was named to mark the 1897 Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It was first introduced by William Cook’s family. Originaly believed to be a cross between Spangled Old English Game , Dorkings and Buff Orpingtons some believe there has been a strong influence from the Speckled Sussex.
They should have a mahogany ground color with black spangles with white tips, white shanks and feet and red eyes. Although this color has been around for many years in England it was just recently introduced into the United States.
These stunning birds are good layers and add real beauty to the Orpington flock.
