    Is it o.k to cross a half BO and half RIR rooster with any of the following breeds of hens? If so, which ones would be best to cross?

    • Rhode Island Red
    • Jersey Giant
    • Barred Plymouth Rock
    • Easter Egger

    Yes that is okay. Any of the breeds would work just fine.
    Just one thing though, never misrepresent your chickens as full such and such breed if they are not. Always let the buyer (if you sell any) know what they are getting.
