Your favourite crosses?

Sussex-Rocks. Got two pullets from that cross and they're excellent.
Any Cornish hybrid is fantastic. Solid meat birds, good survival instincts, broody as they get.
I have probably a billion Bantam Cochin kiddos running around and every one of them is unique and lovely (completely useless, but very cute).
Nice! Pretty does have it's place! I love the yellow feathers!
I've done a lot of mixes and like most of them. But, one totally accidental cross has just thrilled me. My Dark Cornish hen was in with my splash Ameraucana rooster, hid a nest in the blackberries and hatched a nice clutch. Really not the breeds I would have picked to cross, but I'm not one to turn down surprise chicks.
18 months later I have three pretty blue hens that lay blue-green eggs. Each is a great layer, and each has raised at least one clutch for me. The broodiest one I call Snake, cause that's how mean she is when she's broody . She's wonderful and will be a keeper for me.
I'll see if I have a good pic of her on my phone....
My bantam cochin mixed with d'uccle.
The hen in front, i have a couple like this.
This years little rooster.
Ha, that's exactly what my little girl (photo above) is! Spangled Bantam Cochin X Mille Fleur d'Uccle. One of my favorite birds!
Mine are always Columbian colored, I assume it must be dominant over the Millie fluer color, the second generation crosses are showing some slight gold markings on their backs and they are getting smaller. I love my little fluff balls.
On the left is my frizzle cochin d'uccle mix hen.
These are lovely! Beautiful cross oldhen!
These are adorable too! I dunno why but the frizzy feathers bug my OCD a little but they are charming!
