I love barnyard mixes! They are so unpredictable and unique! Some people think they are a pain when they are trying to breed purebreds, which can be true, but I love them all the same.

So please join and chat with me about your mixes! This is your chance to brag! All mixed-breeds welcome, mixed-varieties/colors too! Pictures are encouraged!


I currently have two Old English Game Bantam/silkie mixes, a brother and sister about three months old. I am loving how their plumage is coming in! I don't have any pictures right now but plan on getting some tomorrow!

Another mix of mine passed away recently. She was a bantam Orpington/silkie mix. Her name was Ro (pronounced Roe, but short for Robin Hood). I don't have any pictures of her but she was mostly coal black with a few dark grey feathers. She had partially feathered feet and cheek puffs as prominent as any Auracauna. RIP my precious chick.


Please join the party!

I have quite a few random mixes. My first is a silkie mix. He’s my baby. We bought him from a hatchery and they thought he was a purebred silkie. He has a son, a silkie mix/RIR cross. Absolutely GORGEOUS but man is he a jerk. He’s had to be separated due to causing fights. We have two austrolorp/Turken crosses that we hatched.

We've got a bunch of mixes too. :) Here are 4 of them...

They're about 8 weeks old. The black cockerel is EE/bantam roo (not positive which one, but could be red bantam cochin); the silver pullet with the "do" is white crested blue Polish/white silkie; the mostly white pullet is buff orpington/white silkie; and the partridge-ish colored pullet is partridge cochin/silkie. :)

We thought we were buying different breeds but seems we got a lot of mixes. Out of 12 barred rocks we got 2 roos that look pure br. But then we got 1 roo that looks pure black Australorp. And a few of the hens are br x red meat chickens??? They are huge but super sweet. Then we also got a batch of buff orpingtons and had some of those turn out more red with a few black feathers! Since they all seemed to be a bunch of mixes we finished off our flock with some Easter eggers and gold sex links!😂😂😂 Now to decide with roo(s) to keep and see what pretty babies we end up with!

We got six chicks from a 'Barnyard Mix' back in May this year. They're about 6-7wks old now, I've had them for six weeks. I have a feeling they are mixed with either Barred Rocks or Wyandottes (or something similar) some have barring, but one has beautiful lacing. Any guesses? I thought maybe the yellow two were possibly a Buff Orpington/Barred Rock crosses? The fourth and fifth chicks have fully feathered feet...?

I can't wait to see how they turn out!

I have a barnyard mix that is being developed into a breed. They produce on average about 300 eggs during their first two production seasons and get big enough to eat. Hens are also capable of going broody. Coloration of feathering and eggs still variable, but all barred.
Wow, could we get some more info here? What are the chickens a mix of? What do you call them? Fascinating!
