    I have BO, SS, RIR, BR, Soon SLW, GLW and white silkies.
    how would I get Buff columbians in any of these breeds?
    which would be the best.

    Let's resurrect this old thread instead of making a new one about Columbian Orps.
    I seem to be making them with no problem with my homemade recipe from my BUSTOFF line of Black orps. I made 2 Buff Columbian pullets last season. So, I am bouncing them off Silver Cuckoo, now I have these 2 pullets in with one of my Buff Orp cockerels, next I will take them to my White Orp cockerels. I already have made more Buff Columbians. Here is a pic of a White Columbian or as they called them 100 years ago Ermine. hope you all are still liking the idea of this very unusual Orp variety.
    Have a great season.
