    My two favorite breeds are Buff Orpingtons and Rhode Island Reds. I like Buff Orpington Roos because they are docile, but I like RIR because of egg production.

    I heard that a RIR roo and a BO hen gets a "Strawberry Orpington", but what does a Buff Orpington roo and a RIR hen get?

    That could be a very dumb question, please forgive me if it is.

    Well you can get a chicken with all the good qualities that you like and be beautiful or one with the parts you don't like. But try it will be interesting. You will love them anyway.
