    My main roo, Versace, is a heritage Splash Orpington and I cross him over my one Hatchery Buff Orpington.

    So far this combo has only produced cockerels - they have a blue feather base/fluff with a golden buff/red outer feather (I have no idea if there is an actual color pattern for this?):

    First cockerel - the red/buff with blue. The other cockerel is a Versace/Delaware cross

    Quote:I have a similar combination to yours. [​IMG] I crossed my standard Splash Cochin rooster with a standard Buff Orpington hen, and got this result:

    The color/pattern seems very similar to the first rooster in your pictures (cockeral #1 with the buff/blue), except for the feathered feet/legs (since you crossed a Buff Orp with a Splash Orpington, rather than how I crossed a Buff Orp with a Splash Cochin instead). [​IMG]

    Beautiful chickens by the way, everyone! [​IMG]

    Here is a neat Blue/Buff pullet. She has a pattern gene and will throw Buff color evenly in her offspring.

    This is Sunny at 17 weeks, he's a Buff Orp cross but not sure what the cross is. He's now 8 mos. Guess I should get a more recent picture,he's filled out quite a bit since this one.
