    I think that's swheat here on BYC. I think they sometimes hatch out just buff, but I'm not positive about that. Contact him and ask about them. I've been eyeing those myself........gorgeous birds.

    Edited to change byc name. I had a brain lapse, lol.

    I have made that colour in Orpingtons.

    The colour breeds 100% true if the male has two barring genes (the male in this photo has one barring gene, so in the region of half of his offspring are buff barred, the other half being plain buff).

    I just hatched out 4 buff barred Cochins (bantams). They're about 4 weeks old. I'll be selling eggs eventually but they have a ways to go! [​IMG]
