    What cross would make this color chicken?
    Possibilities are:
    Copper/red color Japanese bantam rooster w/ RIR or BR or BO hen.

    She is darker than a buff, but lighter than a RIR, and half the size of her
    12 week old, totally barred, hatch mate.

    The mamma of that one has to be the BO.

    Thank You Mahonri,
    Do the momma chickens determine the color of the offspring?
    I have tried reading the breeding section, but it gets confusing...
    can you give a quick run down of why you picked the BO?

    Do you have photos of the parents? At least one parent had to have the black on tail and hackles and wings.
