    I haven't read anything about crossing breeds. Could you cross a red sex-link with a welsummer and get a wierd looking chick. If anyone has ever crossed chickens show me your pics.

    Many here have mixed breed chickens - they are 'barnyard specials' LOL

    Nothing bad about mixed breed chickens - sometimes they will even out produce their parents.

    Many 'production' breeds are crosses to get hybrid vigor - just think cornish crosses for meet production.

    If you end up hatching some of your eggs, post some pics!
