    So, I am soon doing a hatch of my Barred rock rooster x Barred rock hens. I was thinking of also throwing in some Barred rooster x buff eggs. I know these won't sex link, but from my understanding chicks will all be black than as they grow a lot of orange will bleed through or be in the under coating. I was curious as to if anyone has adults of this cross too.

    I don't have that cross, but all chicks should be barred with leakage. Hopefully someone with this cross will stop by and post some pics for you.
