For the love of mutt chickens

    Lots of folks come to this section to show pictures of their beautiful purebreds and share stories of certain breeds. Let's talk about our mutt chickens and mixed breeds, their behaviors (good AND bad), what makes them unique, and when possible, share pictures!

    I have a mutt named Olga. She's a small bird, half American game and half EE. She just started laying this past week, and we weren't sure what color eggs she'd lay. Her mother was an EE, and she has a peacomb but her eggs are small barely-blush pink and just sooo cute. She's a tiny bird, and I think her father might have been a bantam american game rather than a regular, or are regular
    american games small chickens by nature?

    I'll post her pics as soon as I find one that's clear. She runs when we come out and try to take pics of her.

    We are about to hatch out some more mutts, too.

    So what kind of mutts are y'all producing?

    When we get an incubator, my son-in-law is going to hatch some Red sex link egg, that will be sired by a Dark Cornish rooster. I'm anxious to see what this will produce, hopefully some hens that favor the cornish but lay very well like the sex link.

    An interesting one of mine is a Rooster which looks EXACTLY like a New Hampshire Red rooster.

    His Father is a "Golden Comet" (Red Sex-Link). His Mother was a pure-bred Buff Orpington.

    A MUTT that doesn't LOOK like a "Mutt".

    Ha-Ha !!!

    I have some mutt eggs in the bator right now. Austrolarp rooster over Red Sex Link Hens, LF Cochin Hens, Barred Rock Hen, Dominique Hen, EE Hen, and Ameraucan Hen. I bought 8 eggs locally that are from this group. The Ameraucana egg she gave me was clear. I have 1 green egg from her EE and am not sure which brown egg goes to which hen so they are gonna be surprise chicks.

    Got 1 shipped egg that is Ameraucana x Wyandotte that is also developing in the bator.

    How funny, I have been wanting to start a thread on mutt chickens. Here is my mutt cockerel, Tully. His dad is a black silkie and his mom is a mille fluer d'uccle (my avatar). He was hatched on July 9, 2010, and he is super sweet.

    This is his "broody momma", she is a cohcin/silkie. She is very soft and very sweet.
