    I have 3 Rhode Island reds (Bantam dark show type) and 3 Barred Rocks, also bantams.
    What would I get if they were to cross breed?

    If the roo is RIR, then you get black sexlinks. If the roo is BR, you get all barred birds with some red in the hackle area.

    OK, very interesting. I guess I will seperate them in the spring and just let them be pure breds. [​IMG]
