    I hatched out some chicks from a RIR rooster, Jersey Giant pullets and RIR pullets. What color should the offspring be mixing a RIR rooster and Jersey Giant pullets? I was not expecting the chicks to be solid black when they hatched.

    The Rhode Island Red cross with a Jersey Giant should be all black I would think..

    OH ! Can't wait to see what they grow up to look like. I have both breeds also and was wondering about this; also the Light Brahma/Giant cross too. Beautiful babies !! Thanks for sharing.
