    Wondering....What babies would you get if you cross a Lavender Orp Hen with a Buff Orp Rooster?

    The cross is tricky and depends on the genetic background of your buff orps.

    More then likely u would see black chicks, then as they grow out some will leak red? all carrying/hiding lav.
    From there, breeding of this offspring would be rather interesting in with the color possibilities in the next gen.

    reddish chicks with black leakage, or black chicks with some red leakage...those are my guesses
