Red Ranger rooster bred to a RIR hen

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys! I have a question for you. I was wondering if anyone knew what breed would come from a Red Ranger roo and a RIR hen.

Does anyone know or has anyone ever had a red ranger breed a RIR? Anyone know what the egg production will look like? It cant be that common of a cross because I can not find out anything on what to expect. We just hatched 4 of these little guys. It was our first hatching experience! 

My flock 3 Buff Orpington 8 RIR 5 unknown bantams a loving wife 3 boys and twin girls on the way!

Just guessing, but since red rangers are a cross breed I would guess that there will be inconsistencies in chicks from the cross.

egg production might suffer some and feed to egg conversion might suffer a bit more.

personally I like my hens a bit heavier than what passes for heritage heavy breeds from the hatchery.

They eat more but there is more for the stew pot when they are done laying
