Now you have seen my pictures of my orpingtons and maybe realise why I love the various colours.

I went to an Art School in Harrow, Middlesex when I was a youngster and perhaps this is why, not only do I love my chickens, but the variation in the colours of these magnificent birds.

If you look at the picture of me, you will see that it is absolutely full of colour!!

There is no getting away from it - I am known in the Orpington Club as "THE REBEL ORPINGTON BREEDER" due to my love of the various colours.

I have introduced people to the Orpington Club and now it has the highest number of members with different Non Standard Colours so there is no reason why the Club cannot grow and grow in strength as colour is what we need in today's way of life.
