Anyone try this cross before?
I just hatched eggs that were the RIR roo over a French Wheaten Maran hen. The chicks look a lot like pure French Wheaten Maran's.
Does anyone know if the eggs from the cross's will be dark spotted like the maran or solid lighter brown like the RIR? If the egg trait carries over from the hen - i'd like to hatch several more of these.
This is what mama's egg looks like (with the chick coming out):
Two more - both eggs are from the same hen - some are light like the one on top but most are much darker like the one on the bottom:
