    Big Red is the product of a Blue Orpington Rooster over a Buff Orpington Hen.

    I am posting photos of him from hatch to current.

    Remember not to look at his tail which was pluck by a nasty old hen.

    I put him in with some of my buff orpington hens and have been collecting the eggs for hatching.

    The first batch started hatching today along with some of Bonnie and Mosby's chicks.

    A rainbow of orpington chicks at my house!

    It is not too hard to tell which one belongs to Big Red.

    The color is really striking against its siblings. The others are blonde.
