    Does anyone have any pics of such a cross? I am going to be getting a bunch of Blue Cochins, and since I have a BO roo, I was just wondering how that would end up if I hatched some eggs.

    Pics of chicks and adult birds please!

    Aww, those chicks are really cute. The brownish one looks just like (in color) my dark EE chick does right now. Maybe she'll be blue-ish. I bet mixes between her and my BO roo would be interesting too, and olive eggers to boot!

    your mixed birds may look nothing like these posted. that's the funny thing about genes. although the buff orps probably all have the same buff colored genes, there are alot of different ways to get buff and that said, your blue could have other modifiers that totally change what colors you get.
    you'll just have to wait and see what you get, then you will know what your birds carry for hidden colors. one thing you can count on is feathered feet.
