    I'm curious I have a Barred Rock Roo and Buff Orpington hens. What would the offspring of this pair look like? Does anyone have pictures?

    All the chicks should be barred.If you turn it around and use a BO roo over Barred Rock girls they should be sex linked.

    All the offspring will be barred. Depending on the other genetic factors of the male and female, you may get buff barred (which is beautiful!). I'm pretty sure buff is dominant to black, in which case all the offspring would be buff barred.

    The barring is sometimes expressed more like lacing, but all offspring will show some sort of pattern like the ones on the thread link I posted above.
