Isabel Cuckoo Orpington
Truly one of the most beautiful Orpingtons available and a favorite here at the farm. We are no longer producing this variety but have decided to keep the page up for education as we see a decline in the color quality of Isabel Cuckoo being offered online (2018).
The coloring on these magnificent English large fowl beauties just pops out on fresh green pasture.
The Isabel Cuckoo is genetically a diluted barred partridge, with buff highlights.
This is not the easiest of colors to breed. After several generations the lavender will fade and it becomes time to introduce Crele Orpington back into the breeding program to darken the Lavender and define the barred partridge pattern.
Our Isabel Cuckoo Orpington are 100% Pure English Large Fowl, from two diverse imported lines.
