    Hi everyone, I am going to buy some dutch bantams. I would like to breed them. Obviously I will be using a dutch bantam cockerel and hens but what happens if the cockerel mounts one of my other chickens? For example my polish, what would the chicks be? Sorry if this sounds thick :)

    The chicks would be mixed breeds. They would probably have a small crest, and body shape in between that of a Dutch Bantam and a Polish.
