Like their Buff counterparts, Black Orpingtons tend to be calm, quiet and affectionate, and make great pets.  Adults will have black feathers with an array of green, blue, and even purple iridescence in the right light. They will lay 4 to 6 large brown eggs per week. Orpingtons can be broody, and make great mothers if allowed to hatch fertile eggs.
