    I'm new to raising chickens and I want to maintain/increase my flock this spring by raising my own chicks. I'm curious about what colors I may end up with when chicks are hatched from the mix I have. I do not intend to try and maintain or create anything specific so they will always stay together as a mixed flock. Anyone up to offering suggestions?

    To the best of my knowledge, from what I was told by the breeders that I bought them from, I have all Orpingtons (except one). I have a Blue rooster, 4 Buff hens, 1 Gold Laced hen and for fun 1 white Ameracauna hen. Here's a couple pics to help. Curious what I'll get from each hen.

    Thanks in advance.
