    Hello every one. I am thinking of importing a few rare breeds (varieties) of Orpingtons. Can you help me out with a little more info. This is what I am getting. My biggest question is, will they breed true? And what is the difference between a CRELE and a LEGBAR? Can I use a cuckoo to create other orpington colors (crossing with other orpington color such as lavender..... blue...buff)? I have been raising blue/black Orpingtons for a few years now, I just recently bought (this past summer) lemon cuckoo's, white and buff orpingtons. If you could help me out with any additional information on these new varieties , that would be great!
