I was just thinking of a few questions about breeding these together.

1) would they be sex linked
2) would they be good meat processing birds
3) colour would they be




Thanks in advance, Jay

Do you mean Production Red?

They would not be Sex Linked.

They would be good layers and probably below average meat birds, if the parents are hatchery stock.

They would come out light red. Typically a New Hampshire-type color.

X2 on QueenMisha's post; to get sex linked offspring, you would need to cross your Buff Orpington male with either a silver gene hen (which would give you Red Sex Links) or a barred hen (which would give you Black Sex Links).
