oh okay...do u think that they would be good layers?

Probably better layers than either breed because of heterosis (hybrid vigor). But you only get heterosis from the first cross of two chickens that are from separate and distant lines.

Sorry, no pics from me. I only popped into this thread to see the photos myself. I want to see the color.

Some where online there used to be a photo of a Speckled Sussex and a Buff Orpington cross, and it looked a whole lot like a New Hampshire. But I guess that's besides the point, huh?

I'm pretty sure that would not be something many people do, so it's quite possible that while hundreds have seen this thread, they don't have the pictures. Hopefully someone will though.
