    Hi Guys, I Now Have Chocolate Orpingtons and When they get older I am going to try and find a different breed of chicken that I could breed to them to make a cool looking chicken and I can't really decide what to breed to any help would be appreciated. I also have Lavender Orpingtons that I can use for breeding also!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!! ~NATHAN

    That Actually is A really good idea and plus that would work well for me because I have 3 silver laced wyndotte chicks right now anyway!!!! I will definitely have to breed tho two and see how it turns out!!!!!!!! Thanks

    It probably won't have very good lacing the first time but then I can breed the chicks back to the Silver laced rooster to get better coloring!
