    Does anyone have crosses of these two birds? I have a Welsummer Rooster and I'm going to put him with my Buff Oprington girls. Was wondering if anyone have pictures?? Thanks [​IMG]

    I know this is an old thread but had anyone done this. I have a welsummer cockerel and his surrogate sisters who are buff Orpington and was wondering about hatching some eggs this spring.

    I have 3 eggs set, the first hatched today. Dad is a buff orpington and mom's a Wellsummer. "She" hatched yellow just a few minutes ago. It looks completely yellow but I'll know more once it fluffs up.

    What about egg color? Did they come out darker than a buff orp egg?
