    I have a (Black Jersey roo X New Hampshire hen) roo who is red and black. He mated with a buff orp hen (not intended). From that mating, I got one hen who started out buff but has turned dirty brown looking buff as she has gotten older. She is flighty like the New Hampshires tho. I have to run her down just to pick her up.
