    I have some of this cross but I don't have any pics of them yet. MissPrissy I think is working on these also and I think she has some pics of them posted on here somewhere. I am hoping to create some Red Orphingtons out of this mix so I will be using the darker most Orphington looking ones and breeding them to each other untill I get what I'm looking for that breed true. I have some that came out looking just like buff orphs, some that are a darker red looking orph and some that are an in between looking color. I also used a RIR roo on Buff Orph hens.

    Give it a try.
