    What can I expect from an oriental game Rooster and a production RIR hen? Will the temperament be like one or the other and will the egg production be good like a RIR or poor like an oriental game? What about the appearance? Here is the roo:

    It will be Better laying than a Game But not as good as a RIR. It won't be as aggressive as a game either.

    I made that cross before.
    Here is a pic of the hen I raised from that cross.

    I made a couple of those also and they looked like the one WClawence posted a pic of. They were from my Gold Phoenix Roo and RIR hens. I don't think I have any pics of them and I gave them away to my neighbor about 5 months ago. The were very pretty looking and I hated giving them away but I didn't have a place to keep them seperate from all my others to keep them from mixing.

    She was a good layer, laying fifty or so eggs before going broody.
    I bred her to me Rosecomb Phoenix rooster and raised one pullet, then she died.
    Here goes a picture of the pullet which is Rosecomb Phoenix X (Asil x RIR)


    Another from a different angle. The rooster in the back is her daddy.

    I bred a Brown Red Game Roo with RIR hens and all the pullets are colored very much like a Brown Red Game pullet, and the cockerals are colored more like a RIR. They are only 16 weeks old so can't tell you how well they lay yet or what color the eggs will be. They are intermediate size between the two breeds and the temperment is in between the two breeds as well.

    Quote:Thats funny.... have you ever had either breed? I'd be scared that they would get the aggressiveness from the RIR!

    We have a Buff Brahma X American Game pullet running the yard right now. Picture a wheaten hen, only buff colored all over. Very pretty. Gamefowl have been used for centuries to add vigor and strength to the gene pools of barnyard fowl, (i.e. the RIR, Brahmas, Cornish, etc., etc.) You will find that a game cross will be very nice birds.
