Blue Jubilee Orpington
Created by Doug Austin in the USA and Keith Gibbons in
Not recognized by APA- (considered a project color)
No leg feathering (could still show up from time to time as
with all imported orps). This line of Orpingtons are one
of the largest that we raise
|What to expect in breeding:
In this variety the Blue Genetics rule does apply. The Blue gene causes
both the black and white on the Jubilee to be blue. So Blue Jubilees
are absent the Black and white pigment
|Release Date - 2014
||Egg Laying - Fertility - Good,150-180 eggs per year. Can be
Broody - Peak laying is between 8-18 months, once hens reach 2 years
old longer intervals between laying after molt could be expected.
This is our first year with the Blue Jubilee and we will update their page as we continue to raise them.
We have posted some pics here for color comparison between our Jubilee plumage and the Blue Jubilee. In the Blue
Jubilee the action of the blue gene causes both the black and white on the Jubilee to be blue. So the Blue Jubilee
would be mahogany base or body color with blue feather tips lacking the black shaft.
