Does anyone have any unusually-paired mutt chickens? I have this one mutt chicken, Olga, whose mother was a pretty gold EE and her father was a handsome American game rooster. She looks like an EE from the shoulders-up (has the typical ameraucana-type beard/tufts) and looks like an American game from the shoulders down... she has long, thick legs and she's REAL fast. She's not as big as my other EE was at 20 weeks, but as of tomorrow, she is 20 weeks old. We anticipate her to start laying hopefully sometime around February/March. She's the first chicken I've raised since chick-hood, but she's not very warm and friendly. She's sweet, but she is stand-offish and keeps to herself for the most part. I think that may have to do with the gamefowl influence because my other EEs are my friendliest chooks. I'm anxious to see what color eggs she produces, too. I'm really hoping she'll produce a creamy off-white/yellowish-tinged egg, but for all I know, she might lay bright blue eggs. Do any of you with mixed flocks ever allow your birds to mix breeds? What are some of the interesting combinations have been accidentally (or on purpose!) produced in your yards? What are some of the temperaments?
