    I recently got a Black Australorp (spelling?) rooster and I have Rhode Island Red hens and I am wondering what that mix would look like. I would be very interested in your chickens and if you have Polish Black Australorp mixes either that would be cool. [​IMG] I can't
    wait to put some of their eggs in the bator and see what I get
    Thanks [​IMG].

    Black is dominant to pretty much everything else, so you'd likely end up mostly with black offspring, possibly with a couple touches of red here and there.

    This. The females could look a lot like black sex link hens. The males would have red leakage mostly hackles, saddle feathers and wing bows.
