    i know hes a mutt chicken a beautiful one at that but jw do you think he would be a good lemon blue project roo for orps since he is 3/4ths orpington and only 1/3 GSL... he is splash in color up until his chest as you can see

    If he is 3/4 orp, then I, since he is splash patterned, would cross him to a black and then blue and see the different variances that you would get out of him.... just sayn! [​IMG]
