    Does anyone know what you get when you cross a Golden Buff (aka Red Star, Cinnimon Queen, Golden Comet, etc) hen with a Rhode Island Red rooster? Has anyone made that cross before?

    You will have some shade of red hen that is really good at laying light brown eggs. [​IMG]

    I believe the Red Sex-Links have Rhode Island Red in them, if I am not mistaken. They will be good dual-purpose chickens.
