well as it stands i have r.i. reds buff orpingtons barred rocks and sicilian buttercups. im curious about what i can frankenstien up with these guys. im really curious about a barred/ buff orp cross too. teh buttercups id like to cross with another colorful breed maybe Araucanas . i am lucky enough to have cocks and pullets of all the above minus the araucanas
I also have a hen that I hatched out from a Black Australorp Roo and a RIR hen. She is black and has red/brown neck feathers. She is a very pretty bird. I have her in with my RIR and BO hens with a RIR roo.
I think I have figured out which eggs are hers and have 2 of hers (I hope) in the incubator due to hatch on the 8th with a bunch of my green EE eggs.
someone else posted pics of a br and bo cross, and the results were gorgeous (I thought). I want to make some of those, once I can figure out which eggs are from my bo hen. I'll see if I can find the post for you.
Speckledhen had some of those crosses that she loved. I hatched some three years ago and they were ginger colored and very friendly. Built similar to Orp and layed very well. I gave an entire flock of them to my mother and she loved them.
