I was wondering if anyone has crossed Swedish flowers with the jubilee orpington? I will be making separate pens for them and was wanting to build a third pen to see what I get if I cross them.
My pure bred Orps rarely went over 3 pouds. The cross with a layer would mot make a bigger bird.

I have the English Jubilees they get 8-10lbs
I guess I should have said that the dressed cockerels were rarely over 3 lbs. An adult 2 year old rooster of my Buff Orpingtons was ~7-8 pounds live weight. They were hatchery stock from Murray McMurray in the 80's. I am sure there are larger ones than mine were!
