So I live in AZ and it gets hot and I was wondering if I could cross breed junglefowl with my silkies, would it be a bad idea? I just want 2 things: 1 a cool looking chicken/bird to cross breed and 2 is to breed that silkies and that breed to make more heat tolerant chickens

Well if you got Silkie traits back, it would no longer be heat tolerant, but if you wanted a heat tolerant cross, well, I don’t know if jungle fowl are heat tolerant so I want to wait and see.
