Just wondering what their chicks would look like?
Check out the Chicken Color Calculator:
Under the "Browse Male" tab choose "Buff" "Black" and click on the "Black Tail" picture (yes I know he doesn't have a black tail)
Under the "F" tab choose "Red" "Black" and click on the "Columbian" picture.
Go back to the "Parents" tab click on calculate.
Click on the "Phenotypes" tab for a rough drawing of the colors of the offspring.
The calculator assumes no hidden recessive genes are in the original birds.
i saw a picture of that cross somewhere it looked like a buff orp with a rir colored tail
Theres one way to find out.. I think you would get some nice eggs. I think that would be a pretty neat cross. Those buffs are big fluffy girls, cross that with a pretty RIR. You could call them Buff Stars.
I could buy the rooster and hen, breed them, incubate the eggs and raise the chicks to adulthood in less time than it would take me to figure out the Chicken Color Calculator!
Well I had decided the BO Roo had to go but now I think he can stay and be the Big Daddy! In fact that may be his new name! I have three beautiful RIR hens and my little banty wants to be a mama so bad I could slip some eggs under her broody butt! Save alot of money on the bator I was thinking of buying!
I just cant figure out the chart! I flunked science!
Quote:Me either! I can't find an all white rooster (white rock) option....
Yes, they can breed. I did it quite a few years ago and it made orange looking orps. They did not have black in their tails.
