Could anyone tell me what the chicks would look like?
Also can I have more than one roo?? I love my chickens. I will eat them as well as get the eggs. I plan to get more breeds for different color. Eggs. Does the roo change the color of the egg? Stupid question sorry
What you get really depends on a few things. Are your Ameraucana really Ameraucana, or are they hatchery Easter Eggers? What kind of sexlink hen do you have, black or red? And what colors are the game hens?
The Dominique hen should produce black sexlinks. Barred hens can only pass their barring gene to their male chicks, so any chick that hatches with a white spot on the back of the head is going to be male.
The Buff hens will produce chicks that are lighter gold than the Welsummer.
