    Jubilee x Buff Orpington what will I get?

    I'm considering creating a new breed so to say. I love my Jubilee orpingtons so much, Buffs too. And I was interested if by crossing them I could get something like Jubilee but for the base color to be closer to buff. Hope someone can help me and inform me if I should even try it, what are the...

    Okay, so I'm completely new when it comes to raising chick's. I've done weeks of research etc but some things you just learn by doing. This leads me to ask, my chick's are about 3 days old and I can see their little feathers starting to come in. I noticed that multiple of them were almost I'm...

    Three weeks old and already got a red comb… sus?

    Hey guys, just playing a bit here I guess 😂 but yeah, got a few three-week old (EDIT-crossbreed) buff orpingtons. One feathered up really quick compared to the other two, and now it has a comb twice the size and much more red/pink than it’s broodmates. I’ve got some (low quality) pics for you to...

    Orpingtons colour and breed confirmation

    I bought chocolate Orpington eggs to hatch. 3 of the eggs did hatch and this is what came out. I believe I have 1x chocolate rooster, 1x chocolate hen and 1 splash? Hen seems to light shades of brown. Also they are smaller than I expected them to be (5 months in this photo).

    Lavender Orpington - Cockerel or Pullet?

    I hatched out these two in early April, so they are about 3.5 months old. I have never had this breed before and I'm having a hard time determining what sex they are. At first I thought one cockerel and one pullet, as one of them has more of a comb than the other, and its tail feathers are...

    Can anyone tell the sex of any of my flock or is it too early? They’re coming up on six weeks.

    I am back to chickens after a 5-year hiatus, now in Santa Fe, New Mexico and delighted to come back to BYC!! Bought four "pullets" at TSC in March, now about 3 1/2 months old. Yesterday this Buff Orpington made a strange crying sound a couple of times -- "she" is also larger, with larger...

    Possible deformed eye/eye socket on buff orpington pullet?

    I have a buff orpington pullet who is about 14 weeks old (maybe closer to 15) and I've noticed that her eyes are... off. I feel bad that I didn't notice this sooner and so I went back to look at some older pictures; now that I know what I'm looking for, I can see it in all the prior photos...

    Confusion Over Cuckoo / Barring Genetics

    The whole chicken genetics angle is a minefield! I'm trying to work out what I will get in the F2. I call upon anyone that finds genetics a breeze! I'm looking at you @The Moonshiner et al. So here it goes: I crossed a solid blue Orpington male with a black cuckoo Orpington girl. From that...

    Silver ducklings from Buff Orpingtons

    Unfortunately, the last couple of ducklings from a failed clutch were found in the coop this morning. Projected hatch date was in a couple of days. Parents are Buff Orpingtons and they have no contact with other ducks. What's really interesting is that both ducklings were pure silver. Last...
