    Just a thought I had one day, since RIR's and Buckeyes are similar in some ways. I assume that this cross would produce a walnut (aka Cushion) combed bird with the mahogany color of both breeds and larger wattles than the Buckeye?

    Any pictures of such a cross would be appreciated. If anyone has an idea how they'd look based on genetics alone, I'd love to hear your thoughts. [​IMG]
