    I'm looking for a cross-breeding chart.
    Does such a thing exist?

    Specifically, what characteristics are passed on from each type?

    As an example, Crossing a Light Brahma Roo & Buff Orpington, versus crossing an Orpington Roo with a Brahma hen.

    What are the differences in offspring?

    OR if I cross a Cornish with an Australorp, can I get an excellent layer that gets heavy quickly?

    I think such a chart SHOULD exist, if it doesn't already.

    There was a post in the last week or two with a link in it where you could enter the color/type of parent birds, and it would give you genetic info for possible babies. I think it was German, but that part was English.

    I'll look around and see if I can find it again.
