    I don't have pictures of that cross but expect chicks that are somewhere in between the colors of the RIR and BO, a light red. They should have the black tail and markings that the RIR has.

    I did that with a Speckled Sussex rooster and a BO hen. The colors of the chicks should be very similar. Here is mine.
