    Woops that was wrong. You should get some barred birds of possible different color with the barred rock roo and thr rir hens.

    The black may cover the red so you may get black barred color with some red leaking through on spots.

    you'll get chicks that look like their parents, grandparents, or a combo of any of them...

    So basically, I'm saying, that in no breeding circumstance, would you expect a white bodied bird, or a blue bird.

    the buff color though, is a crazy one.. and can carry all sorts of hidden things.
