I’m a farmer with a mixed flock, newly adopted ranging from 4 weeks to 1 week old. I have 1 rooster and he’s in charge of 15 ladies. The Rooster is a Rhode Island Red The hens are as follows: Amauracana Barred Rock Silver-Laced Wyandotte Buff Orpington Rhode Island Red Araucana I plan on letting a few eggs from each hen hatch, and experimenting to see if I can make my own chicken breed! I’m in love with the short, stocky chickens like the Buff Orpington so I’m hoping my cross can keep the squat stature <3 and I want it to be an Easter egger as well. Has anyone worked with any of these crosses previously, and do you have tips on what threads I could look at to speak to other aspiring breeders and compare experiences with cross breeding?
