    I keep catching him displaying and trying to get up on my hens. I swear he think he's a chicken. Do you all think my chickens will let him do the deed? Has anyone hatched a cross like this? Would the chicks be sterile like a mule? Any info would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    Wouldn't it be cool if some ended up fertile.

    When I was a kid we had a wheaten OEGB hen that hatched some Ringneck crosses. They were weird looking!

    I never saw them make it to adulthood. I think a skunk or civet cat ended up getting them.
