The Bantam Orpington is the miniture version of the Orpington. The Bantam retains the appearance of the full-size bird, but in a smaller size. There is a large variety of colours in the Bantam version, including black, blue laced, white, buff, red, buff black laced, barred, buff Columbian, and birchen. The Bantam retains the friendly personality of the Standard breed, and seldom or never flies.



The Females are good layers of small brown eggs and when broody, are great setters and mothers. They have a very docile temperament, handle cold weather well, and are adaptable to either confinement or free range. On average, they can lay 150 to 180 eggs per year, depending on their feed quality and environment. The Bantam Orpingtons are resilient birds that can tolerate confinement, making them ideal for secured runs.


Our Breeding Lines

Perhaps due to our love for the Orpington as a breed, we have found ourselves enamored also with the Bantam.  They are just as hardy, have a very similar personality, and eat FAR less than the Large Fowl! And, as with all of our breeds, we always strive to start with the best! With that said, we are proud to say that our birds originate from the lines of Sarah Batz of Stella Frances Farm in Ohio as well as Bud Blankenship, with whom we continue to work.
