    It can go either way. They can look more orpish or more like a RIR or a combo of the two.

    Speckledhen's Nutmeg is RIR in color, BO in body type, with white legs.

    This post is old..but I just ran across it.

    I hatched out a RIR x Buff and it turned out BEAUTIFUL! It's feathers a a soft red with buff, like a red star with more buff. lol.

    Actually, I was going to ask what you would call them, b/c I have one too. She looks like a red orpington, which is what I have been calling her. I will take a pic later.
