    Does any one have any experence with snow-domestic crosses.
    are they fertile the first year? I have 6 out of a snow gander and a cotten patch hen that hatched last May, and was wondering if they would breed this year.

    According to Gray (1958, Bird Hybrids). The cross occurs both ways and is fertile. I doubt they will lay the first year.

    I would think they would be sterile like most any cross of different species. Like Canada X Domestics are sterile and not able to produce offspring.
