    I have 5 RIR cockerels, I want to get their own pullets, I'm thinking about get 3 RIR pullets and 3 Speckled Sussex pullets.
    But I don't sure what their chicks will be.
    Rhode Island Red X Speckled Sussex.... Have you ever bred the Rhode Island Red X Speckled Sussex before?
    If you do, Can you upload a picture so I can see what it turn out. or you ever had bred RIR with other breeds, that's fine with me.
    I'm really curious what they look like.

    I might try crossbred my RIR cockerel with Light Brahma and Jersey Giant for once.
