I am thinking about trying to hatch out an EE/Rhode Island Red for the purpose of trying to get a nicer roo. What are your thoughts? My hens are Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, and EE and I have a Silkie/Marans cross pullet and Cuckoo Marans pullet. Do you think the EE in a the roo cross would affect my egg size? My EE's lay small eggs, the rest of the hens are large to extra large. Any thoughts on what the temperament might be like? Have you tried this cross before?
