    I am getting a Lemon Cuckoo Orpington rooster and a Lavender Orpington. Has anyone bred these 2 breeds? What colors did you come out with? Any pictures? If not, what do you think the chicks would turn out to look like? Also won't the chicks be 2/3 orpington and 1/3 cuckoo maran?

    Never heard of mixing the two... here is a calculator to help determine what colors you may get. I tried calculating it and it said the first generation would be black barred for males and females. The second generation if you bred a female to the father lemon cuckoo would be 25% dominant and 25% heterozygous black barred and 25% black patterned gold -necked/birchen barred dominant and 25% black patterned gold -necked/birchen barred heterozygous. You could play with it further to see the out comes and such.


    Here's the calculator I used----> http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html?mgt=E:E^R/E^R,B:B/(B)&fgt=E:E/E,Lav:lav/lav

    yeah and they will show lots of buff cuckoo color on their black body...

    just like below birds but with buff barring instead of buff

    It's a genetic calculator I found. Hard to understand at first but it has been helpful. The colors may be different in the link for some reason instead of being the ones listed above.
