New here..Right now, I have 40 chicks about 8 weeks old. Thirty of them are standard breed. Ten are what I call "mixed". I know there's a better name, but can't think of it. Anyway, my question is in regards to the chicks that are mixed. My chickens and roosters are free-range. So, basically, I'm not sure who is breeding with who...Are those chicks just as good as the others that I ordered and know the breed? My mixed are beautiful, but to some people think they are odd in appearance. They sure don't look like the "norm"! I hate to fence them by breed just to get true breed chicks.
