Orloff, or Russian Orloff, is a slow-growing chicken from Persia. They are often raised for meat. Orloff pullets are productive layers of light brown eggs, but egg production slows after their pullet year. They used to be in the APA but were dropped after a lack of interest by breeders.

They come in several recognized colour verities such as Black, White, Spangled, Black-tailed Red, Mahogany, and Cuckoo.

The Orloff was named after Alexei Grigoryevich Orlov, a Russian Count.
