I'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but it does concern my 2 week old chicks that I've hatched out myself. Mods, feel free to move this, if you feel this belongs somewhere else. I happened upon a blog this morning that said that crossbred chickens are infertile. I don't know if they were just talking about their own crossbreds being infertile, or if they were stating that all crossbreds are infertile. I am pretty certain that crossbreeds are NOT infertile. I have mutts of my own who now have their own offspring. So I know that at least my current adult mutts are fertile, now I'm a little concerned that maybe some of my chicks aren't? My rooster is a mixed breed and I bred him to some silver laced wyandottes- so I am not concerned with the wyandotte mixes since they wyandottes came from a hatchery. But I have another hen that is my rooster's favorite, I often times call the pair married, as they are almost inseparable. I have hatched out their own little love child, and I am wondering if since they are both mutts (practically brother and sister, they were hatch-mates from the same litter I believe), if that could mean that the chick I hatched out could be infertile because of the extreme mixture? Any ideas or thoughts on this? I actually prefer having mixed breeds and so this would make for an interesting topic for others who also have and love their mixed breed chickens.
