RIR X White Leghorn = Cinimon Queen, etc. I have a few full stock mixed with other full stock & curious what they'd be called. Like I have a Maran Rooster with Americania Hens & white leghorns. Also have a Salmon Faverole with Americania etc etc.. any ides where I'd find something like that ?

    Any cross breeds are called by their parents names with a "X" in the middle like this: aaaaaaa x bbbbbbb. An exeption is blue marans. They are a cross between black copper and wheaten marans.

    Quote:White Leghorn hens do not work in Sexlink crosses and wont produce Cinnamon Queens when bred to a RIR rooster.

    There arent names for every cross breed. Crossing just gives you mutts. Though the Marans X Ameraucana or EE cross is a typical cross done to produce Olive Eggers.
