    Has anyone have or had a Barred Rock/Buff Orpington mix? I plan to integrate my 2 flocks this week, and wonder what color any chicks may come out as? So, if anyone has any clue or pics, can you ket me know.

    There were some at the Fair here one year about seven years ago. Very very beautiful. They were liquid gold in color, like a new gold coin. All one color shiny gold. And the barred pattern showed in the gold, in 3D relief, like it was carved - so the bars were slightly higher than the rest of the feather - no black, all in one color/shade of gold.

    Also, I wonder,, if it might make a crele type look.
