After having several chickens of various breeds, I'm really not sure if one purebred breed suits me. I like being able to pop eggs in the incubator and hatch them, which means I have several mutt chickens. I have brown egg layers, blue and green egg layers and chocolate egg layers. I'd like to keep the blue and green eggs as well as the chocolate eggs. If I were to cross a BR with the EE, what would it do to the egg color? Lately, most of my EEs are now with Vader, my huge EE rooster, but there is still one chicken in the main pen. I have five of purebred Barnvelders that I'll be breeding with Barnvelder, but I also have a few feather-legged cuckoo marans roos there. My question is does it really matter that I will have mutt chickens? I'm not showing them and any chickens that I sell will be called what they are: mixed. Thoughts? Opinions? Do others have mutt chickens? Do they lay well?
