Would like to see pictures of your buff crosses.

One of BUSTOFF's boyz,
Quote:No problem, I like my BUSTOFF and his kids as much as any of my other birds.
My main roo, Versace, is a heritage Splash Orpington and I cross him over my one Hatchery Buff Orpington.
Buffy and Versace:
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. 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).
Beautiful chickens by the way, everyone!
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.
Nice pictures of your buff crosses
I have some! but I will need to get some pics...
