Ok, this is about the Orps with the red leakage. I am NOT wanting to upset anyone, and I don't want to start a fight. I just want to better understand what is happening so that I can work with it for a project and to eliminate it in my BBS flock. From what I understand Orps are extended black. I was told that the problem is that one of the original parents had Silver which canceled out the red. At first this made perfect sense, because it seems to be sex linked because it only shows up in the males. However, after thinking about it, I am not so sure. Please someone help me understand this.
