    Im going to start a few breeding projects [​IMG] and i need some ideas (this is much easier than asking about specific crosses) so post pics of your coolest crosses, and if possable the breeds that were crossed. If you dont have any pics descriptions are welcome too.

    Thanks! My blue hen lays a medium sized, pale pink, shiny egg. I'm hoping they will get bigger next laying season.

    I like OEG white bantams mixed with any other OEG bantam. RIR with anything also.

    I am working on a consistant pink egg layer too, I used buff and ameracauna, but I really like the blue orp cross, he is perdy
