    What would the offspring look like between a RIR rooster and a buff orpington hen look like? [​IMG]

    There are different ways to make buff so you can get some surprises, but in general they should have an orange-red color. Might or might not have black in the tail. If it is there it could be restricted.

    They usually come out an orange, in-between color. usually they have white legs as those are dominant.
