I have a RIR roo. What would I get if he was crossed with a BO, Leghorn, Black Star or EE. I searched the past posts and thought if I posted this it would be faster.

You would get a very nice laying chicken, usually referred to as a barnyard mix. The cross breeds wouldn't "be" anything, not like a sex-link. You'd probably get a great variety of colors, that's a big reason many of us like to mix breeds.

I believe with the white leghorn hen you should get sex-link chicks, but don't quote me on that. The others would more than likely be some shade of red or buff.

I'm not trying to breed anything special. I was just curious to find out what the chicks will look like. I have 20 eggs in the bater and due to hatch on Halloween. Thanks Lensters for the link which I will be saving.
