I'm not up on what you can/should cross with what, so I'm going to ask this question. If it's a dumb one, just overlook me...we're still new at this. We have 18 black sexlink pullets that, hopefully, will start laying anyday. We also have 2 RIR roos and 2 bantam partridge cochin roos. I know that you are not supposed to breed the sexlinks together (thus no SL roo), but is it okay to breed them with the RIR? If I'm understanding correctly, the only thing that would happen is that they would no longer be sexlinked, but they should still be healthy and good egg producers, right? Thanks.
