Jubilee Orpingtons Chickens are a rare color pattern of everyone's favorite chickens, the sweet and personable, Orpingtons. The Jubilee color was developed around 1897 by crossing a Buff Orpington and a Spangled Old English Game Chicken and aptly named after the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. They are still very rare here in the United States. Meyer Hatchery's Jubilee Orpingtons are the English strain.
Like all Orpington Chickens, the Jubilees make great pets due to their calm and friendly disposition. They are also great layers of cream-brown colored eggs, laying approximately 3-5 each week. They are round and fluffy in appearance, are clean-legged, and have a single comb. Hens are also broody and make great mothers.
