    Has anyone ever crossed an American Game with a Welsummer?
    Now before everyone gets upset for me crossing these breeds let me say that the Welsummers are hatchery birds and the American Games are mixes of a few different American Game lines.
    I want hens that look like the welsummer and the Game but that will lay a larger brown egg and be able to find most of their own food as well as escape from predators.
    What do you all think?
    What will body size be? Egg Color? Temperment (will males kill each other)?
    Its a cross I have wanted to make for a long time so I found some American Game Hens and one Cock and I just bought 6 Welsummer pullets and 2 Cockerals.
