can anyone post pics of cool looking crosses. I really want to know what a bo and rir cross looks like. Is it possible for a standard breed rooster to mate with a bantam hen or vice versa? I have heard of cool silkie crosses does anybody have any expeirences with cross breeding chickens.

As for your other question... My bantam cochin roo seems to be able to do his duty as far as the big girls are concerned. The BO eggs I cracked appear to be fertile even!
Have a couple uder a broody right now, so time will tell for sure.

The black Mama hen is a Barred Rock/Frizzed EE cross pictured with her daughter (Welsummer dad) and another baby Blue Rock/EE/Welsummer cross

This chick is Frizzled EE x Welsummer, so should be an Olive Egger

The bantams are OEGB/Serama mix and the standards are more Frizzled EE/Wel and Blue Rock/Wel crosses
