Depends why you have to get rid of them, what you plan to do with the keepers, and what you prefer. Personally I dont like either breed, but if I had to pick I'd keep the orpingtons.

I'm going to be a brat. I've never had orpingtons but I do have 2 RIR's. Keep the RIR's. :D But why the decision to part with 2? In the long run, 2 more really doesn't make much of a difference over all. I couldn't part with any of mine. Not even crabbie Abbie. She's too great for entertainment when she plays with our dog. :D Besides, I know deep down in that ornery little heart of hers that she loves me.

Why doesn't your friend just get some chicks and you keep your chickens? I don't understand why you're giving up chickens you clearly don't wish to part with. Say "no, get your own chicks."
