I am wondering what the characteristics of these three crosses would turn out to be. Black Copper Marans Roo breed with a Lavender Orpington hen Blue Copper Marans Roo breed with a Lavender Orpington hen Lavender Orpington Roo breed with a Black Copper Marans hen Any thoughts?? I have read the thread Lavender Marans. However, the project breed away from the copper coloring as they desired. How would it progress towards the copper coloring? As I understand they took my third cross suggestion?
