    I dont know yet what to name him, im pretty sure he is a roo. No ideas for a name, I hope that red on his head spreads to his whole body when he grows up I want him to be the stud of my future Orp flock. I have a dark gold colored Buff Orp hen that will go great with him.

    That's how myBigRed and his sons looked at hatch. However, no other chicken has grown up to look like him.

    This is him now. 100% orpington. Blue orp roo over buff orp hen.

    My red orp project is to duplicate him. I am on Gen 2 in the bator now.

    Your chick will be worth watching as he grows up.

    I SOOOOOO HOPE he does grow up to be red, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your red rooster and every since I saw him I have wanted RED orps, Yes blue is great, splash is great, black and Buff are great but RED IS GRAND! Its my favorite color in the world. I'm going to see about breeding my DARK gold Buff to the blue roo. The hatchery buffs are just so light and washed out these days. I wish I had a pic of the daddy bird he looks like Speckledhen's roo on her Avatar. I will keep you guys posted on his looks as he grows.

    Hatch buffs from Hinjc stock. You'll be amazed at the difference in hatchery and their stock.
