    These are first generation birds, but so far all that have hatched have been just gorgeous. They have the feather texture of the orpington, size of a RIR, and excellent winter laying ability. Colors will vary from blue, gray, and red.

    Facts about these birds:

    Comb: Single
    Colors: Brown, red, blue, and gray
    Egg color: Brown and pink variations
    Size: Standard
    Climate: Any- do VERY well in the winter, but get a little hot in the summer
    Leg: Non- feathered, Some grey, some yellow

    Genetics:

    Roo- PUREBRED BLUE ORPINGTON
    Hen- PUREBRED RHODE ISLAND RED

    Chicks will hatch as followed:

    25% Red/Brown/Splash - PULLETS
    25% Blue/Gray/Splash - PULLETS
    25% Red/Brown/Splash - COCKERELS
    25% Blue/Gray/Splash - COCKERELS




    Paypal does not work with my computer, it always screws up, so if you are interested, PM me. I will give you my adress and you will have to mail me the money, then when I receive it I will be sending out your order. Yes, my process does take a little longer, but it is the only way I can ensure that my computer doesn't accidentally charge you three times.

    Quote:I know what color they are from a genetic calculator. (and from hatching them)
    No, no pics of older ones... The offspring in the pic is the oldest I have (hard to say what age... guessing around three months old in the pic)

    ETA: The chick in the 2nd pic grew up to be a red/brown splash variation
