    Not that it matters, but I have one male and female Wyandotte. He is my only male and is old enough now, and has started, to mate with my females. What will the chicks of my Ancona, 4 Red Sex Links, and 4 Rhode Island Reds turn out to become? Is it a half and half thing or is there mixed breeding involved?

    There is no way to accurately predict it as they will be hybrids. Keep in mind that your Red Sex Links are already hybrids to begin with. The only prediction I can make with certainty is that your Wyandotte rooster x your Wyandotte hen will produce Wyandotte chicks. Whatever combinations you end up getting, good luck with your flock.
