    I have an Orpington Roo and a Delaware hen that my roo favors. I want to hatch some chicks but I dont know how
    an Orpington/delaware mix would act? Does anyone know anything about hatching mixed breeds?

    I have three 7 week old chicks out of my Delaware hens and by my Blue Orp roo. I think they are sexlinked- I had two with spots on their heads that are roos, and one little pullet who is marked much like a black sex link. One roo is light blue, the other is messily barred. They are all super friendly, jump on my back and shoulders- I really like them. These pics are from a few weeks ago, but it gives you an idea.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They are getting to be fairly attractive- very round and plump. This was a bad pic of the blue roo, he is actually a cutie- his eye look weird in this pictures.
