    I can not figure out how to use the calculator. Can someone tell me what a Delaware roo over a Light Sussex hen would look like? Would the chick look buff colored?

    lol.
    Why are you wanting to do that? I have to admit. I thought about what would happen with a Coro/Del. but then I thought "NO MORE CROSSES"!!!

    Hahahahaha.........

    I hate to admit it, BUT .....

    I have 3 Light Sussex girls in the Delaware coop for the winter. I hatched Delaware eggs, and I do believe I also hatched 2 Light Sussex eggs. I knew the eggs were lighter colored, and my Light Sussex lay very light eggs, but I just thought I would throw them in to see. I have a bator full of chicks and I see 2 look buff colored ..... that must be them. [​IMG]

    GEZZZZZZZZZ, I knew I should have stayed up last night and watch who hatched outta those eggs! [​IMG]

    I love chicks!!! That thickness is the Sussex in them. I'm going to weigh my biggest Del roo at process and the Sussex roo... I'm looking more forward to weighing them than I am eatting them.

    I thought I had every egg and every chick accounted for .... these 2 HAVE to be this cross.... they just have to be! So odd to me, though!
