    I thought these pics might be of interest. This is not some weird new colour I'm trying to make, just an also happened, with the jubilee Orpingtons I've been making.
    This bird is both mille fleur & barred. The mother was a red barred Orpington carrying one mottling gene & the father was what I call a Jubilee wannabe Orpington (two mottling genes). I had quite a few of these barred mille fleur Orps this season, all male of course. Most have now been culled. This is the youngest; he was not amused at being grabbed for a photo call. It's not easy taking photos of squirming chicks single handed:p

    LOL I think my valley is probably a very long way from your valley. I own a little valley with a little tributary of the Minnesota River.

    Quote:Have you gotten any more like this one? Reason I ask is that I used a White Rock rooster over Red Sex Link hens and there was one that hatched our barred but as she began to develope she started getting in feathers that are similar to those in the picture. I think mine may have a little more gold look to them.
