These are large, quiet, and gentle, a beautiful, pure white variety. They are large framed birds with pinkish white skin and very easy to dress; good winter brown egg layers and also will set. For those of you who like the characteristics of the Orpingtons but want a white chicken these are the answer.

Customer Product Reviews
We've had White "Orpies" for a year now. Of our six breeds of layers, they're the gentlest. They don't run away when you go to pick them up, and they don't squirm when you hold them. When kids visit, we always tell them they can handle "the white ones." Plus they're great layers!
I ordered some of these White Orpington chicks last spring, and they are absolutely gorgeous!! They are very large healthy birds. With a wonderful temperment. Ours come right up, and eat out of your hand. If you like huge white chickens, that lay large brown eggs. You should try some of these!
