Buff orpingtons have a beautiful golden plumage that is thick and full, making this already heavy breed appear much larger than they actually are. Their size and plumage allow them to be consistently good egg layers even in the winter months. Many people raise these birds because of their calm disposition that makes them easy to handle and less agrressive around children
