Breed descriptionOrpington duck was created by William Cook from Orpington on the end of 19th century. He blended Cayuga ducks, Indian Runner ducks, Aylesbury ducks and Rouen ducks to create a buff colored duck, because the buff-colored plumage was popular. Later he developed Blue, Black and Chocolate Orpington versions that had white bibs on their chests.
