    your first pix is pullet. if you cross ri red to buff orp you will get some of each color and a variety of reds from golden to dark red, it is a gene thing. either way you have some beautiful birds. where did you get the blue astralorps? i love my lorps they are they best layers and at least one a year goes broody and raises me babies.
