Are there any other colors of Orps that one can breed Buffs to? I want some variety and genetic diversity.
I got 2 Lemon Cuckoo Orp roosters as babies and I am really not digging the temperament or social behavior they are showing. They are thugs, one attacks kids and guests and the other one is just a weirdo with no rump and hangs around the waterers so he can grab hens when they come to drink. Both are like sneaky little rapist lying in wait all the time. They have both torn combs on several of my girls and chase them constantly. They even try to drag them out of their nests while they are laying eggs and it's seriously messing with their production and it quite frankly really pi$$es me off. Poor 'ol Wooster, my BO rooster, is trying his best to keep the peace but he has a lot of territory and hens to watch over.
Additionally, my one LCO hen finally started laying and while she is beautiful and huge, she started laying late and is laying mostly shell-less eggs. So, yeah, I am pretty much disillusioned and done with the LCOs.
Any other options?
Thanks for any advice.
