English Chocolate Cuckoo Orpington Chickens
The original Cuckoo Orpington LF was bred and introduced by William Cook’s daughter Elizabeth Jane in 1907 not many years after his death. The stunning Cuckoo pattern on the chocolate color makes this breed stand out. As with all English orpingtons the chocolate cuckoo has a mild temperament and is a good layer of large eggs. Our chocolate cuckoo orpingtons come from both Gisbrechts (fancy chicks) and Sacre (heirloom orpingtons) lines. If you would like to add a little sizzle to your flock then the chocolate cuckoo is definitely a breed to consider.
