    You guys all know that animals are wonderful creatures almost any breed of animal in the same species can breed with another.

    IE, Duschund and Chihuahua and you get a Chaweenie.

    So my question is, cross a Red Sex Link Roo, [​IMG]

    with a Buttercup [​IMG] for those who don't know of Buttercups there the two that look alike.

    What do you get ............[​IMG]

    A Red Sex Link Buttercup, unfortunitly he turned out to be a rooster. Don't know what I'll be doing with him but isn't he a cut devil???

    Anyone else have an odd mixing that created some good looking bird, post them lets have a look.

    OK everyone have a great weekend, hopefully I'll be over the flu before next week. God Bless Bee good. KWS

    Exactly. There's no such thing as all these "designer breeds", that's just a good marketing term for a mixed breed dog.

    Do your buttercup hens have buttercup combs? That cockerel looks to have a straight comb and I'm not familiar with buttercup genetics, but I'd think you wouldn't get a straight comb from that cross.

    I believe they call it a rose comb. But yeah the mixed roo looks a lot like his daddy did except for all the multi coloring.
