    I have 6 breeds of chickens, they get along great! But if they never been together, they may no get along for 2days to a week, after that they seem to get along good

    Hahaha ok,[​IMG]
    I am not sure, but I have crossed my Americanas/Marans/Orps/Australorps and its fun to see what surprises you get, here are a couple of my crosses from 2013 and the parents looked nothing close to that! [VIDEO][​IMG]

    I think you'd get a good cross, though I've never had Iowa Blues.

    The cross at the top is the Gold/Blackish one
