    I have some eggs under my broody right now and I was wondering what are the likely colors that could come out.

    The possibilities are -

    Buff Orp and....

    - Silver Laced Wynadotte
    - New Hampshire Red
    - Rhode Island Red
    - Deleware
    - Red star

    There is also a possiblility of BO x BO but I already know what that is.

    I'm guessing the Buff orp is the rooster, right?

    With a Buff Orp male crossed with both the SLW and Delaware you will get sex-linked chicks. The female Buff Orp/Delaware will be buff and the males yellow. You can find pics here: http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Sex-links/BRKSexLink.html

    The female Buff Orp/SLW will be black with touches of buff around the head and neck, the male will be black with greyish white markings around the head and neck.

    These are Buff Orp/Barred Rock chicks, but I think the Orp/SLW chicks would look similar.

    Males:

    As for the Buff Orp/RIR mix I hatched one of those out 2 years ago! Here he is:

    As a chick:

    I'm curious about the Buff Orp/Red Star mix. I'm planning on hatching out one this spring too. It would be great if you could post pics when they hatch! [​IMG]
