    Hello Everybody,

    I have already bred a Delaware/Dorking rooster with a New Hampshire hen,
    (That's as far as I got with mixing!) [​IMG]
    The Delaware Dorking rooster has the colors of a Delaware and five toes like a Dorking.
    I was surprised but the hen that hatched when I bred them looks like a reddish Delaware with five toes! (I'll have to post a pic soon!)
    And I know that the Delawares are related to New Hampshire's.

    I was wondering if anybody has tried breeding a Blue Cochin with a Delaware..
    I tried researching but they aren't exactly "Blue/Delaware looking" [​IMG]

    I want to try breeding these:
    Delaware/Blue Cochin
    Delaware/Speckled Sussex
    Delaware/Salmon Faverolle
    Delaware/Buff Brahma
    Doubtfully but maybe a Delaware/Partridge Plymouth Rock. (I'm not sure if My PPR hen is laying anymore.) [​IMG]

    Any idea if these breeding ideas are a good idea? And if they are post a pic please :)

    I think ifyoubreed the Dela with the BC, You might get a feather legged Delaware?Maybe?

    I want to try to make a Silver Austrolorp.
    BR RooX BA Hen
    Or
    SLW RooX BA Hen.

    Hello,

    So 5 toed, Feather legged, Heavy, White-ish blue-ish bird... Nice [​IMG] That could work.

    I think your idea of the Silver Australorp would be nice,
    I have one black Australorp hen that hatched the DEL/DORK/NH.

    Good luck with your project!

    Yeah, I think that would be a pretty close guess!

    My mom promised me 12 hens and a rooster next year, so I will order a BA hen and a BR Roo!
