    a barred male to buff female could make buff cuckoos or a creal looking babies

    BO roo X CM hens gives black sexlinks with a lot of buff leakage, look up the Sexlink thread and you will see pics of mine on the first page but with using Barred Rock hens.

    CM roo X BO hens gives all barred birds and should also have a good bit of buff leakage.

    I'm currious if you had pics of the Marans/Orppington mix? I've got a Splash Marans (White with black spots) that is starting to mature and he's in with 4 Buff Orppington hens that are 1 year older. He's 13 weeks old and has been grabbing a Bielefelder hen but not mounting...soon.

    Thanks
