    Does anybody know what the genetics are of the spangled color variety of Russian orloffs? I am getting some blue wheaten eggs to hatch and a spangled Russian orloff rooster was in with them. What should I expect colorwise?

    Wish I knew. I have some Orloff mixes hatching in a couple of weeks. Have no clue what to expect.

    I will. [​IMG].

    There are 5 pure Orloff, 3 Orloff/EE, and 5 Orloff/Cream Legbar due on Valentine's day. Hoping for a few with muffs. beards and crests. My EE are 1/2 Cuckoo Marans and they are black and white with irregular barring.

    My main Orloff cockerel is really colorful, so it will be interesting to see the colors in the above offspring. Next time I'll separate out my Jr. Cockerel with the 2 Orloff girls, since he has the longer neck and more upright stature but almost no spangling.

    I do have one Wheaten Ameraucana that just started laying. She has a bad wry tail so I probably won't hatch any of her eggs.
