    Okay. I know this has probably been discussed to death on this forum, but I don't have the patience to go back and research it. So, if you don't mind helping me out with this, I would appreciate it. Here is the deal, in November we received 5 RIRs, 4 GLW, 4 SLW, 3 Delawares, and 2 Dom chicks. They were "supposed" to be all hens. Over the past few weeks, we've been suspicious of one of the GLW. Guess what - today, she/he cranked out his first cock-a-doodle-doo. We are tickled to death he ended up being a rooster. Now, on to my question. When the GLW rooster dates the other breeds (RIR, SLW, Delaware, Doms), what would we end up possibly getting breed-wise from each date when the broody hen hatches them out? Thanks so much for your input!!! [​IMG]

    Mutts. Hopefully pretty ones. :) I have a whole coopful of mutt chicks right now. Some are exceptionally pretty, some aren't... I'd be interested to see a GLW/dom chicken.
    How funny that you got a surprise rooster!
