    well to be pure bred they usually come from a breeder and you breed the same breed together........... the RIR X BO should come out nice

    Most likely a lot of red chickens. Course there could be some orangey buffs in there since you have Buff Orpingtons.

    You'd have hybrids. Mutts, if you will.

    However, they all likely be similar in appearance to the Roo, be good egg layers, most likely be pretty good hens.
