RO's are better and I like them better personally as dual purpose.
Here are some of different stages of the birds these tiny not black and white are the offspring of
Juveniles feathered, they look like any ~1.5-2 month little ones
about 3 month
A bit older 5-6
fake 'mama hen'
I did have some broodies, not of Orloff breed so, they look kind of like that... fluffy, angry and hormonal
this particular foster broody did not work well so, first time, some make good broodies, some not so good, just have to see which one is best and keep that one.
Russian ORloffs are on endangered chicken breed list, lately they were taken to 'threatened' status with < 500 birds.
Here are pictures of older cocks, 2y old
It is 1/2-Orloff
Crosses are large, 'dress' nicely, cold hardy, heavy and grow decent meat on them.
There is another breed that can have different colors Gilyan, they are separate and were used in breeding Orloff's a long time ago. At this time there are Gilyan chicken in Russia and I did see some in UK.
