    Im curious if a ruffed grouse and a chicken can breed because I have a lot of grouse around my house and they hang around my chickens. Is it possible??

    I could not say. I have heard of quail/chicken.

    But again, glad you have joined us.

    No, it is unlikely that the species will cross.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    I have no clue, but try asking in the Managing Your Flock section of the forum! Good Luck!

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! No idea, X3 you might try asking on some of the game bird threads if they can be a problem with your chickens.
