    I've been around chicken most of my life but iIve learned that you're never too old to learn new things. Any advice would be greating appreciated.
    iiam wanted in to bu some 25 Buff orpington hens and around 5 roosters. Ever hear of anyone crossing the black giants with the buff orpington hens?I've read different stories about what colorings you might get out of the crossing. some say you might get mostly black some say you might get grey or blue. So I'm willing to try and se what we end up with. if anyone on here has ever tried this could you please let me know what they looked like after becoming adults. I would be forever in your debt. I am going to wait until spring to do this.

    thank you so much,

    Lois

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I haven't crossed those 2 and don't know if anyone did, but do post in the Breeds, Genetics, & Showing section and see what the members there say.
