What would the chick be called or look like ? ? ? Would it be a mutt ? ? ?
An easter egger is a mutt chicken. Crossing it with a pure BO makes another mutt chicken. There are so many genetic unknowns in the history of EE's it could be just about any color at hatch.
Here's an EE x Orp..... I'm not CERTAIN... but I think it was EE roo over Orp. hen as opposed to Orp roo over EE hen.... would it make a huge difference?
And yup, it'd be a mutt! This one has a real sweet temperament. She has a pea comb.
It would be called a barnyard mix or mutt, whichever name you prefer...
Quote:Hey, just to be polite and make the chick feel special, you could call it a "Muffed Orpington". A whole new breed!
What color eggs would it lay? And could I call it a Buff Orpington Easter Egger Mix? Or just Buff Orpington Easter Egger?
How mch could I sell chicks for, the $5-6 dollars people sell EEs for?
Quote:it would lay gree eggs as long as it has a pea comb, and I would call them Barnyard Specials
You won't know what egg color it will lay til it lays. I've got pea combed EEs that lay light brown eggs.
Okay, what's a pea comb?
