    I have a blue orpington rooster and some of the feathers going across his back look to be tinged with a reddish, yellowish hue...Is this normal and if not is there any way his offspring won't have this?

    I'm not seeing any picture. Can you post a pic so we can actually take a look at him?

    I have a black orpington hen I hope to breed with him, will that get rid of that red coloring?
