    Quote:What if you have a cross breed and don't know what it is? I have a beautiful roo that is who knows what. I guess that doesn't help you if you want to make one to match.

    I hatched some Buff Orpington x Barred Rock chicks this spring. The pullets are beautiful! I've looked through hatchery catologs for something yellow/black, but all I could find were either banties or poor laying breeds (such as Buff Brahma and Sicilian Buttercup). But these should lay very well! The best part is they're even sex-links! Make sure to use a BO roo on BR hens, because if you do it vice versa they'll be barred-colored (and NOT sex-links)!

    I just took these pics, they're three months old! (BTW, I have 15 of these. Their leg-coloring varies. Leg colors are: yellow, pink, blue slate, and willow green. I don't know why. [​IMG])

    Here they are as babies

    Here they are today. [​IMG] Super super soft feathers. Especially my Annabelle! The silkie cochin crosses are all the black/blue ones. Not the red and orange ones in the back!
    [​IMG]

    And here's a little collage I made together of one of the roosters, Leroy! [​IMG] Of different ages, as you can see lol.

    Here is my Blue Orp X Delaware cross that I just love. Her name is Blue Belle (or Belle for short). I think she is sooo pretty. She is 5 months old.

    all of these crosses are just beautiful.
    cattitude, will you keep us posted on that pretty little chickie?
    the silkie/cochins look so lovable and pettable.
    there must be more of these crosses around.
    buff/barred cross looks like another breed, but i cant think which one.
    just lovely.

    thank you for posting these pics everyone.

    Mr Meatyboy Fancypants, Silkie dad and Rosecomb mom, now belongs to a good BYC member home:

    and his sister Miss Fryer, Silkie dad and Rosecomb mom, turned out "blue" and lays a pink egg every day, also moved to a good BYC member home:
    [​IMG]

    Both birds with sweet, calm dispositions, very good pet chickens who actively sought people for lap time and cuddling...but these birds were TOTAL mistakes! Now we know the golden rule: Thou Shall Collect Eggs Daily So The Hens Don't Hatch New Roosters!!!
