Thank you! Yes, I am definitely planning to cross CCL x Rhodebars. I don't know if it makes a difference as to which breed is the rooster and which breed is the hen, but one way or another I will make this cross this summer if things go as planned. I have a group of mixed laying hens (some Delawares, some Red Stars, and some Black Stars) that I think I'm going to put a CCL roo in with pretty soon also. I will definitely share pictures if/when I get some chicks! I just recently discovered my love of chickens and got my own incubator up and going, so I still have lots to learn. I really appreciate this forum for discussions and learning from others' experience!
