    Will I just get a random off color out of a buff/blue or buff/black pairing, or will I get an actual color? I have a buff roo (maybe, still not sure) in with a 2 black, 1 blue, and 1 buff hens.

    I would put the buff with the buff and get you a blue, splash or black rooster for the others.

    I can't buy a different roo, or have 2 different colors. I live in a neighborhood and only have 1 small coop. I have a NICE buff roo and hen then the other colors that are in there together. I am hoping to hatch a few, but probably not many. Also, if the rooster is way too loud then he will have to go anyway.
