    Curious if anyone else has attempted this cross, and the results from it.
    Below is a pick of one of my flocks. There are 2 RIRs, and 3 unknown breed hens, plus the leghorn roo. Any ideas or comments regarding potential offspring from this group in general?

    Quote:Genetically they will all hatch solid yellow(like leghorns) and will mature to be of a sized between the RIR and leghorns.. they will be good layers..

    Just an observation ,this roo is not a Leghorn , he has red earlobs while leghorns have white ,and also they have lighter body structure from this roo.
    He could be a RIW or a white rock or just a mix/mutt .

    @Aris Thanks! I wasn't sure about the breed. I assumed leghorn. Now I'll do more research to see if I can figure out what he is.
