    Hi everyone! I was talking to a lady earlier and I was talking about breeding one of my roos with my other breed hens she said "NOO dont do that!" I said "Why?" then she said "Because it can cause chicks to come out with more than 2 legs! All kinds of deformitys!"

    Is this really true? If so I have never heard it! [​IMG]

    Never had a problem here! If it happens, though, be sure to send them to Ripley's and make lots of money! lol [​IMG]

    That is the dumbest thing I ever heard. So does that mean if you cross a poodle with a cocker spaniel the puppies will end up with 5 legs or 1 eye or 3 ears or 2 tails. [​IMG]

    Absolutely not true!!!!! Everybody knows when you do that they come out with no legs at all.[​IMG]
    Ask your friend if her parents are pure breds from the same ethnic backround. When she says no,ask her why she has only two legs.[​IMG]
