    Meat bird depends on the size of your sexlinked hens. Maybe, but I've found most any chicken make good eating when cooked right.
    Don't really know what color or colors you'll get for the cross, but keep us posted with pictures.

    There's nothing wrong with it. I just noticed how she is holding it. I think she was walking. But her feet are normal.
