    My free ranging roo was being ummmmm romantic with my guinea hen. Will I have little chicken guinea crosses running around or is it not possible?

    Someone here posted pictures of that cross once... maybe they'll see this post and find those pictures again.

    I believe (I'm not 100%) that a Guinea x Chicken cross is sterile also. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Do a google search. I saw the crosses a few months ago, and I'm still getting nightmares! [​IMG]
    There were guineas crossed with chickens, turkeys, pheasants, etc,... and NONE of them pretty [​IMG]
