    What would the chicks be if the dad was a crested breed and the mom a regular breed? like Polish roo to Rhode island red hen
    Polish roo to easter egger
    Would the chicks be crested or 50% crested and 50% not? thanks for your input [​IMG]

    Here are some of my mixes. I need a new picture though, they have grown a lot. The combs are very different. A lot of them start straight and then split or are buttercup like.

    Some of these were splash Polish hen mixed with several different roos and some of them are Splash Polish roo with RIR hen. I will try to get some better pictures tomorrow if I think of it and if they will hold still long enough(and if it doesn't keep raining making everything sloppy). I got two very pretty roos from these mixed. One is cream with black lacing and the other is red but with golden mixed in (I call him Satan because his crest is on either side of his comb making him look horned).
