Ok, now that I have extra roos, AND incubators (hehehe!) I am thinking about what neat or interesting breeds or crosses I could come up with. So,,,any gueses (or knowledge) on these crosses possible offspring? What would I get if I crossed... 1) An RIR roo with a California White pullet? 2) An RIR roo with a Golden Comet pullet? 3) A California White roo with a RIR pullet? 4) A California White roo with a Barred Rock pullet? 5) An RIR roo with a Barred Rock pullet? 6) An Ameraucana roo with a Cuckoo Maran pullet? (And what color eggs would a pullet of this cross produce since both the very dark eggs AND the blue egg gene are dominant?) Or, can you think of other mixes I may not have? For roos I have an RIR, a California white, a bronze duckwing Easter Egger, a Black Splash Ameraucana, and a Red/Black Easter Egger. For pullets I have RIRs, California Whites, Barred Rocks, Cuckoo Marans, Welsummers, Golden Comets, Cinnamon Queens, Ameraucanas of many colors, Easter Eggers of many colors, a Buff Orp, and then all the fancies listed in my signature below that I dont know sexes of yet. My long term, several generations down the road goal is to breed a 'unique' chicken that will become my signature bird. You know, something that no one else really has, or something. Like a frizzled polish, or a cochin with a polish top hat, or something that lays an odd color egg, or something. I know thats aways off, but I still want to try my hands at mixing and seeing what I get! Ideas?
