    I have only one Buff Orp - she is a hatchery girl.

    My main roo, Versace, is a heritage Splash Orpington.

    The difference in size between Heritage and Hatchery is incredible. I have other Orp hens who are Heritage and they dwarf poor Buff.

    Buffy and Versace:

    So far this combo has only produced cockerels - they have a blue feather base/fluff with a golden buff/red outer feather (I have no idea if there is an actual color pattern for this?):

    First cockerel - the red/buff with blue. The other cockerel is a Versace/Delaware cross

    These are basically the same as what HorseFeatherz NV showed you. Mine are from a Blue Orpington Rooster and Buff Orpington Hens.
    2 Brown/Buff and 1 Brown/Grey Pullets
