    I want to hatch some Orpington eggs and I have a variety of colours in both hens and roosters. I would like to separate them into groups and need some advice on which colours should go together. I'm not looking to add or get rid of any at this time. Here's what I have.
    Hens - 6 buff,1 red, 1 lavender, 1 black, 1 splash
    pullets-1 cuckoo lemon, 1 buff carrying cuckoo gene
    Roosters- 1 buff, 1 cuckoo red,
    cockerels-1 cuckoo lemon, 1 buff carrying cuckoo gene
    Also have 4 red sex link that I can put with any leftover rooster.
