    Hi Miss Prissy.....I had these two chicks hatch and thought I'd share them and see what you think. They are the result of a blue rooster over a buff hen...Orps, of course. Do these look like your big red rooster looked as a chick? My flash kind of washed them out a little...they are darker than the pics show with their faces being a lot darker than my buff chicks. I plan on holding on to them to see how they grow out. [​IMG]

    I'm not Angie, but I just hatched one almost identical from my blue Orp roo over my big RIR/Buff Orp hen, Meg. Can't wait to see how yours and mine develop!

    They are definitely very pretty chicks! I might have to make some more of them...lol.

    What is odd is that this is the only one I've seen from my Meg that is like this. The others start out a smoky, bluish-brown color.
