I am focusing for hatching on Orpingtons and Cochins, plus my Phoenix. I understand the Blue/Black /Splash factor as far as colors of chicks. Where does Buff fit in and any suggestions on what colors I should and should not breed to or with Buffs. I do have a Buff Cockerel (Hercules) and 4 for sure Buff Pullets/Hens. Also have 3 Blue pullets and hoping to get a Splash Rooster. I was also thinking of getting Buff and Gold Laced Cochin Hens, I have a Black Rooster and Splash Cockerel.
