The Jubilee Orpington was named to mark the 1897 Diamond Jubilee of Queen
Victoria.   It was first introduced by  William Cook’s family.   Originaly believed to be
a cross between Spangled Old English Game , Dorkings and Buff Orpingtons but
some believe there has been a strong influence from the Speckled Sussex.  

They should have a mahogany ground color with black spangles with white tips,
white shanks and feet and red eyes.

Although this color has been around for many years in England it was just recently
introduced into the  United States by Greenfire Farms.

These stunning birds are good layers and add real beauty to the Orpington flock.
