Both the Cuckoo Orpington and the Red Orpington were not created by William Cook, the founder of the Orpington breed.
The Cuckoo Orpington was created by William Cook's daughter Elizabeth Jane Cook and was iintroduced in 1907 and the Red Orpington by Mr W. Holmes Hunt in 1911.
Over the years popularity of certain colours faded and it wasn't untill recent years that both these colours have regained their place with the Orpington enthusiasts. But it has taken 100 years untill the appearance now of the Red Cuckoo Orpington Large Fowl.
Once again this truly stunning colour has been perfected by Bob Follows and luckily once Bob had decided to release his first breeding group for sale I was in the right place at the right time.
