    Can I breed a game rooster with a CX hen?

    You could, if the parties are willing.
    Are you going to incubate?
    Would be a weird cross as CX are a cross of about 3-4 different breeds.
    How old is that CX?
    They often don't live long enough to lay, tho she looks pretty good, as they can get too heavy for legs and heart to sustain.

    She's been laying eggs for about 2 weeks or so now! They've been checking each other out but he is caged at the moment because i just got him about 5 days ago and those spurs r big! Im almost scared to let him loose since hes bigger than my other roosters! I just love my chick pea (CX) and i was wanting to try to get some babies from her b4 she does start having problems! I don't care if theyre weird lookin babies...misfits r my thing! Lol!
