    I am wanting to breed some kind of unusual buff colored bird. I would like Buff Barred, Buff laced or maybe even Red Barred but I don't know which breeds I would need to start with. Does anyone have any info or exerience with these colors. I would like for them to have the body type of Rocks or Orpingtons.

    Also has anyone ever crossed a Blue or Splash Orp with a Buff Orp., if so what colors did you get?

    You need to get a barred male and breed to a red-colored female or buff-colored female. This way, all offspring will be barred. Select only the offspring that have the color barring that you're after.

    Thanks, if I bred my Barred roo to a Buff hen, would some of the be Buff barred, I thought they would all be black barred but I did get a Red barred roo from an accidental cross of what I guess was a Barred roo and I RIR hen. `

    Wouldn't you get black and red/buff barred feathering? I'm thinking it would be hard to breed out all the black barring.

    RIR male X barred rock female; select barred male offspring breed to red females.

    Quote:Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too, That Red barred roo that I hatched did have some black in it too, I am wanting Buff barred with no black in it.

    Quote:Don't know about the barred, but you could work with Gold Laced Wyandotte and Buff Orpington to make Buff Laced... That would get you the approximate bodyshape you're looking for. It would be a project though!
