    Okay if you have a Standard EE rooster that is non-bearded/muffed and he is with 2 muffed and bearded EE hens and 1 non-bearded/muffed hen what will the off spring be? Muffed and bearded or non muffed and bearded? Or some of both? Thanks!

    It's a 50/50 deal you may get both or none

    It depends on which hen he "gets" [​IMG] . If he gets a bearded hen, the chicks are a 50/50 chance. If he gets the non bearded/muffed hen, the chicks shouldn't have a beard or muffs.
