    Back in April I recieved eggs from Jody and Charlie. I hatched 6 pullets and 2 roos.

    At the same time I hatched the same from Chris.

    Only the roos were 1 blue and 1 splash.

    Just days shy of 23 weeks the buffs are starting lay.

    Thank you. Red is gorgeous. Side by side he is bigger than Mosby my Blue orp roo. I am hoping for nice babies from him and these girls.

    Ok, forgive the stupidity.....
    but what type of chick are you looking to get when you cross BigRed with the buff orps? I am not good at all that scientific stuff, lol.
