    Everybody is always talking about BBS orpingtons crossed with either blue or black. What would you get if you crossed a white with a blue or black hen Just curiuos

    Quote:I don't know what a white and a blue would give you but I crossed a black and a white and got one that is mostly (if not all) black and one that is barred! I'm trying to get white eventually but that's a ways down the road. I'm still on my first cross and the darn birds quit laying.
