    Most likely cross breeding.

    The hatchery Rouens are already mutts and look nothing like a Rouen, so no harm done there. It's not going to result in a Rouen, though.

    Purebred Rouens are pretty rare and you aren't going to get one from a hatchery.

    Quote:actually my "rouens" are from a hatchery and the only thing they fault is they are a tish small and their keel is not as "draped"
