    Since tetra tints are hybirds that don't breed true (even when crossed with other tetra tints), your offspring would simply be barnyard mixes with a lot of red feathers in them. They would likely be good layers however.

    Red and white barnyard mix birds. Pullets would be decent layers, cockerels might run a bit small for table birds.
