    ok, so i know that ive had like 4 posts about chicken breeds, but i finally figured out what i wanna do. i have a barred rooster now, a rir rooster, a buff rooster, and a blue rooster. i know that the last 3 roos crossed with a barred hen will make a sex link. i know about the blue and blacks. what about the buff/ barred cross?? pics? and a barred rooster over a buff, red, and blu hen. what would that cross be?

    Have done a buff orphington barred cross and the turn into a pretty gray good layers but not good brooders like the buff. Will try and get some pic. Of you breed them back to a barred you get a gray with light barring.

    I've entertained breeding some more of these. I like the look. I used a golden cuckoo and a buff orpington. The chick got the barring and the light neck from the rooster. That's him below. [​IMG]
