    I picked up a mix breed chick about 6 months ago. I liked it because it had a crest. It is a SFH/Orp cross and she has turned out to be one of my favorites. She is gorgeous.
    Now I'm wanting to breed these two breeds together for more for my personal flock/backyard art [​IMG][​IMG]
    I have Orpington hens (lavender, chocolate, buff) and I just acquired a trio of the SFH.
    What is your opinion on cross breeding these. I will include some pics below.
