    The chicken calculator gives these results for SLW roo over Buff Orpington hens:

    50% Pullets, black patterned silver incomplete halfspangled?
    50% Cockerels, black patterned yellow/golden incomplete halfspangled?

    If your Orpingtons are not Buff you can plug in their color and see what to expect here

    The SLW x Blue orp would give:
    25% Pullets, blue unicolor
    25% Pullets, black unicolor
    25% Cockerels, blue unicolor
    25% Cockerels, black unicolor

    SLW x Black Orp:
    50% Pullets, black unicolor
    50% Cockerels, black unicolor

    SLW x Splash Orp:
    50% Pullets, blue unicolor
    50% Cockerels, blue unicolor

    The line to choose color and the results come in English, you just have to look around to find it. That site confused the heck out of me at first, but it's a lot of fun to play with!

    ok so would this mix create a kind of sex link.
    was wondering about combs if the have a straight comb would they be pullets & if they have a wyandotte comb would the be cockerals?

    No, that cross wouldn't create sex-links, either in color or combs.

    I have some SLW/Orp crossed pullets and one cockerel. They have all sorts of combs, from nice looking single combs to something that looks like a wad of gum with a horn sticking up in back, LOL.

    They should all be rose combed since the rose comb is dominant.

    The ones from the Buff hens would be pullets that are pure silver and would look like a Columbian bird like a Columbian Wyandotte and the males would look about the same but would also be split for gold so they would have some yellowish feathering as well.

    The ones from the Blue and Black orps should be Blue or Black but may have some Silver leakage coming through.
