What Breeds Are These Roos? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

you can only get a "breed' of an animal if both parents are that same breed. If the parents are different breeds, or themselves mixed breeds, the offspring won't be any specific breed.

 

When hens set on eggs, they're notorious for stealing other hen's eggs and hatching them also :P. Unless you carefully mark eggs and monitor her every day or so, it's quite likely she hatched another hen's biological chick. Broody hens are sneaky little buggers :rolleyes:
