    what would you get if you breed them? would it be a new breed? is it a bad idea?

    You'd get some mix. Hard to predict what would turn out. Size might be an issue of the games are small and the layers you pick are large.

    would it be impossible for game roo's to mate with red sex links?

    My American Game roosters didn't seem to have any problems mating with my Rhode Island Reds. We didn't try hatch any of the eggs so I can't be sure. My Brahma rooster has also been able to catch and mate with game hens and one hen is setting now so in a few weeks I should know more...
