    Will the babies all be mostly the golden color of the Buff orpington and lay tan eggs as an orpington hen would???

    You will have to post some pics if you want predictions concerning offspring color. I have no idea what genes the EE birds have.

    Buff orpington on RIR will produce a light red colored bird with black in the tail and wings. The birds will tend to look like orpingtons in body type and feather type.
