Our neighbor has our orpington stock exclusively. I know the parentage as I still own them. This weekend their solid black bantam orp hen became a mom for the first time, dad of the chicks can only be either a solid black bantam orp or a splash bantam orp ad these are the only two they have. Where is the world did this coloring come from!!! I still hatch from the parent stock of these offspring and have nothing like these hatch, mine are all black or blue depending on what rooster/hen cross. I am just stumped. There are a total of 4 chicks in these colors.
