The Orpington is also well known for its lazy traits, and although lazy, is well renowned for its dual ability to provide decent eggs and meat. The Orpington demonstrates good mothering abilities. This breed is more of a show bird rather than utility bird, due to its decent size, soft appearance and very attractive and rich colour.
