    have you ever successfully crossed a chicken with any other type of fowl? for example a pheasant?

    It has apparently been done before, but they are always sterile from what I've read. Feathersite has pictures.

    I know you can cross them with ringneck based pheasant and other jungle fowl and some are fertile.
