    Just curious... What do you get if you have a BCM or BLRW rooster who mates with a standar RIR or BR for example - or any other kind of standard breed. What kind of bird would that result in? Not planning on soing this, it just occured to me.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Quote:It would be a cross bred [​IMG] genetic wise, idk, i have a genetic calcuator link on my page if you want to try it for colors. But other then that it would be an xbred

    What is a BCM?
    How come you guys don't get the genetic's stuff and are able to read these abbreviations so good?

    Black Copper Marans. I don't get most of these abbrevations, but am starting to get the hang of it myself. Most of the time I type out the breed name except Easter Egger (this is because of the breeders of the other two breeds we have here) I usually put EE. I reakly do which we had some of the Araucana's from the UK here.
