To the best of my knowledge, chickens cannot successfully cross with turkeys (Meleagris) which makes me wonder how many of the other claims are false.
There is also evidence that Turkey's are capable of parthenogenisis. But it happens so rarely that cant be counted in a statistic either.Perhaps there is one instance one time when such a cross was successfully made? Perhaps with another Gallus than Gallus gallus? Good point, anyway, I'd love to read the fine print of this.
someone had an accidental breeding of chicken & guinea. She didn't know till the odd chick hatched. The resulting Guin-hen was a hen and laid one egg before dying. Had the organ size of a chicken in a large Guin-hen body. Died of a heart attack young. That was pretty much foretold because it got tired easily.
Then a bunch of folks tried to repeat that on purpose
Do some more research. Guinea chicken hybrids don't tend to live long lives. You will notice that the oldest one that is posted on that site is only said to be 1 1/2 years old. They also tend to be sterile.It seems as if it generally doesn't go that bad: https://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Guineas/BRKGuinHybrid.html
