Nellie, You are doing a nice job on creating the Crele Orps here. Keep up the good work.

Its a project,they are a little light but the non english cross has a good deep color,and crossing the 2 should be alot better next generation.You have to start somewhere when you start fro scratch.

I totally agree with you. I like the color of the second roo. But, the first one has a very nice type. You are doing great Nellie. Keep the pics coming. We enjoy them!!! Or at least I do.

Rockinpaints they look like Buff x Cuckoo birds, nothing like crele.

Actually this is the sire bred to the Lemon Cuckoo orps to produce this generation of lighter birds, was hoping to build on type. (Top photo is sire and second photo is the son). the next generation I will cross back to the darker version. Unfortunately we currently don't have a lot to work with in the states. Thank you for the input. (Guess I should have posted the previous generation first

Kristi, they're crossed to LF Black Orps. My chicks are actually a bit darker overall than what the pictures show, I think the lighting in the photos doesn't show their color that well. That and they're losing a lot of their chick down now as they're growing in new big kid feathers.

You're babies look so sweet and you're photography! I've always loved the way you capture shots.

If your willing to go out of the Orp breed to get the color, I would recommend that you use Welsummers to get the BBR gene or Partridge Wyandotte to get the Partridge gene so you can get the crele color. You cant reach true crele from buff x cuckoo (or lemon cuckoo x cuckoo)
