    Can I cross a Blue Jersey Giant Roo with Buff Orpington hens and get Blue Orpingtons or would I get Buff Jersey Giants? What about the leg color? How would I get it to be white?

    Katy: I will probably not even work on this project, My mom would throw a fit ... doubt she'd let me get any BB hatching eggs anyway ... too $$$
    punky rooster: I know ... one of the mons will come and delete on of them in a lil' bit.
    Soooo can I get Blue Orps by crossing a Blue JG Roo with Buff Orpingtons hens? Yes or No?
