    Well I guess since crele orps are now available in the usa- we have decided to go public on one of our many projects....our crele orpingtons in progress.....we have been working on these for quite a while and are pleased with the coloring... we are using buff orpingtons to get better body type on these. This is what we have so far...

    Quote:The rooster is English orpington /Crele marans project cross and we are breeding him over buff orps. ..so the chicks are 3/4 orp. And 1/4 marans project. When we cross again it will probably be to black sq orps. Its just something fun we are doing for color...

    Count me on the list. Among my long list of projects for this year.
    My Cuckoo boys are ready to start breeding. I am using real Cuckoo Orp cockerels with White skin to my Buff pullets. Which means the initial breeding of Cuckoo Orps to Buff Orps will make Crele Orps.
    Here are my Cuckoo boys. Nice to see others are trying.

    Like I said the initial breeding will make Creles
    Boys just turned 8 months old. And I seen them mount. We're ready to start in on the fun!

    The color is what we are after. I love a barred chicken with lots of color!!!! I like the cuckoo buff cross.very nice. We are using the same roo over golden cuckoo marans pullets. Talk about gorgeous!!! Now if they'd start back up laying....their egg color puts our black marans to shame....

    Wow! Great job so far!!!!! [​IMG] I love crele Orpingtons & am so glad to see them being created right here. We now have all of the ingredients for a crele project too -- but not with the Orps. [​IMG] I love the barred pattern in general, particularly when done in color.

    He looks like a BIG boy!
