    If both Roosters have been breeding with the Hen, And IF they are both exactly equally fertile. then their is a 50/50 chance of either Rooster being the father of any given chick. There is no way to know if one Rooster is more fertile than another though.

    provided the chicks can only be frizzle or cochin a combo of frizzle hen and frizzle roo or cochin roo gives a

    75% chance of frizzle and a 25% chance of cochin. Not exactly sure how the Buff Orpington is playing into the picture. IN short if you have a mix of chickens what you will get is a Mutt. (crossbreed that is a mix of different breeds)
