    Quote:You will prolly get a yellowish tinged skin color on the legs. They should be fine temperment wise. Some rummors have been around for quite some time that US American Buff Orp breeders use more Rock in their lines and the English use more Cochin. I bet you will have some great birds with that cross. Good luck.

    I may have an extra Buff Rock Rooster once I can tell what they are. Don't know if you want to wait till he's old enough but I hatched out four chicks that are now almost 4 weeks old. Feathering out with great color, just can't tell what I have yet. PM me if you're interested.[​IMG]
