    I have an assortment of proubly 20-26 different breeds, from heavy meaties to little banties, show breeds to production breeds.
    All in an attempt to breed them all together in a "survival of the fittest" way, to get the best mutts for my area.
    The breeds include, Barred Rocks, a White legghorn, a Silver Lakenvelder, New Hampshire Reds, Easter Eggers, a Turken, a Silkie/Rosecomb mix, a Silkie/Old English Game mix, a Polish/Rhode Island Red mix, a Marans/Rhode Island Red mix, Cochins, an Old English Game, a Cornish/Cochin mix, and a wide variety of mutts.

    Anybody else done this? Anybody got pics of their area-bred mutts?
    Mine are still in stage one, no area mutts yet.

    i have been thinking about doing just that. i have all heavy breads that are great but i have a mutt that is wonderful. figure roos will be frrezer worthy and hens can keep around. i have 2 backyard breeds from MIL a little bany rock and a sexlink cross. can't wait to see what they turn out like.

    Mine are only 4 weeks old . Do you have any pictures of yours when they matured and totally feathered out. I am very curious as to how they may look as adults.
