I have a BQ Splash Orpington cockerel over HQ Buff Orp's, Barred Rock's and Production Red's. I have 2 eggs under a broody(had a 3rd but it did not develop). The 2 remaining eggs are one each of my BO and BR. What will be the possible color outcomes? Also will the BR chicks be barred if male and non-barred if female? Is there a color outcome calculator site? Thanks

All of your chicks will be blue. The BR babies will have dots on their heads if they are males and will have barring in their adult plumage. Your buff orp and production red babies will have gold leakage when their adult plumage comes in. The following is a color calculator for adult plumage. It doesn't show gold leakage, but from experience that's what typically happens with the crosses you listed. http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm#kipcalculator
