    Quote:The fastest & easiest route would probably be to get a nice big Coronation Sussex roo & put him over the typiest Split Orp hen. Then cross the female split to coronation offspring back to the coro roo & the typiest male F1 to a coro female. Select coronation F2s with the best Orp type & cross from each pen. Easy?

    So wait does it matter what color the Orpington hens are? Also why would the hens be the Orpingtons not the cock? I am no chicken genetics expert. Anyone interested in this project? I am thinking of getting the Sussex and SQ orps next year maybe this summer. Also who would you recommend as a breeder for SQ orpingtons? I am serious about this favorite breed plus coronation equals awesome

    Quote:Well, not that we are not interested, but Sussex and Orps are so similar in appearance. If you want to work with Orps, try working on a chocolate. THAT will get attention.

    Greenfire already has chocolates, and Sussex and orpingtons really are not that similar.
