    If I hatch a Austalorp hen egg fertilized by a RIW roo, what will be the resulting offspring?
     
  2. A pretty darn good mutt laying pullet/hen if female and if male a great size roaster chicken!

    The chicks will be beautiful, I crossed what would be the same in color as what you will have. Mine are Black Australorp hens to black breasted red Game rooster.
    The pullets are black with gold colored hackles.
    The roosters are black breasted with gold hackle and saddle feathers.
    And your's should be great layers.
    Mine haven't got going good yet.
