    I have 3 ring neck pairs, was wondering if I was going to try to cross with a chicken, what combination should I use ? Rooster and ringneck hen, Ringneck male with laying hens, game hens, bantam hen ?

    Why do it? Pheasants are BEAUTIFUL without any crossing, that is why there are so many breeds

    That would be like crossing a duck with a chicken. I don't think it will work.

    Even if it would work, what would be the purpose?

    Now that is surprising. I would have thought it not being possible outside of Gene Splicing or laboratory work of some sort.
