    What could I expect? I will have nice roosters and hens of both, so I could use a BO roo on a BA hen and vice versa. I'm not attempting to create a new breed here, I love both of them. I like the egg-laying of the BA--- and the broodiness (I know, that decreases eggs) and size of the BO. I'm sure others have tried this before...what will I get? Golden laced black? Will the roo/hen breed combination make any difference?

    I'm brand new to BYC and am loving it! Thanks in advance to any ideas/advice!

    HI matte,

    You came to the correct section on your first post.

    WELCOME TO BYC!


    So glad you are here!

    I'm certain that one of our resident experts will drop by this post before too long and others will show up with pics of both crosses.

    Have a great week!
