Hi all

We are new to breeding Orpingtons and have a beautfiul cuckoo rooster with buff hens. We also have some standard layers (red, white and black) amongst them. In our first round of hatchings, we had 95% black/speckled black. Our second hatchings are occuring as I type and again seem to be 95% black/speckled black. Does a cuckoo rooster mean we will never get any buff chicks? Can anyone help me understand Orpington breeding colours?
