The Black Orpington is the base of most varieties of Orpington. Any Orpington breed needs a good quality Black program in order to maintain a very nice flock of most Orpington colors.

The Lavender Orpington for example, needs to be bred back to Black every couple of years to maintain feather quality and body type due to how the Lavender gets it’s color.
