    Can you breed a Houdan rooster with a leghorn hen? What will they look like? Do you know if they'll be flighty? If they are do you think
    it would work if you breed a Houdan/leghorn rooster with a Cochin Hen?

    Do you think they would be flighty or make good pets?

    I've heard leghorns are very flighty so they wouldn't be my first choice for cross breeding.

    I looking for a crested,feather-legged, Ornamental layer. Do you think the cross-breeds I selected would work.
