    If you try this cross try both ways, Cornish over Minorca and Minorca over Cornish. I say this as there should be a difference in the offspring. Old timers say the female provides the type suggesting the Minorca over Cornish would be the better cross for meat carcass but who knows until you try both.

    I was planning to do that with my Marans and White Bresse. Basically, I was going to breed true then swap out the roosters in the breeding pens so I could see which I like best.
