Has anyone crossed RIR and Jersey Giant

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I hatched out some chicks from a RIR rooster, Jersey Giant pullets and RIR pullets.  What color should the offspring be mixing a RIR rooster and Jersey Giant pullets?  I was not expecting the chicks to be solid black when they hatched.

The Rhode Island Red cross with a Jersey Giant should be all black I would think..

OH ! Can't wait to see what they grow up to look like. I have both breeds also and was wondering about this; also the Light Brahma/Giant cross too. Beautiful babies !! Thanks for sharing.
