what do you get? (this is a dark red)
Gold is buff, I believe. I have a RIR roo over Buff Orp hen pullet. She is a flaming, bright red with golden hightlights. Just a more iridescent red.
that sounds really cool if it's not too much to ask can you post a pic?
Hard to get pics to show the iridescence in her feathers, but here is Meg (Nutmeg)
Very pretty hen.How well does she lay?
that looks cool but my red would be a bit darker than rode island red so just a bit darker I think
Meg is a very good layer. The RIR sire of Meg was a very very dark one, not a hatchery bird and the Buff Orps were exhibition size ones. The sire also produced my pure RIR pullet, Scarlett, now owned by rooster-red. So, I would say Meg's lines were very dark. Here is her pure RIR,half sister, Scarlett, same dad-I'd say that's pretty dark:
