    Is it possible for another breed of the bird family to breed with a chicken??

    Can a male turkey or a male guinea breed with a chicken hen? Or male whatever?

    My son's hen sat on several eggs, hatched them and they are three weeks old now....
    one of them is larger than the others, has a larger wing span, has long tail feathers
    where the others have close to none...I understand each egg could be father by different
    rooster's but this little guy is different....

    what do you say? Can they cross breed?

    (will try and get a picture but that won't be anytime soon, not in the next few days anyway)
