    We found 7 happy chicks hatched in the coop from our andulsian bantam
    Our cockerel is a crazy polish rooster they are all happy together in the garage and different colours just curious to find out about the mixed breeds these will become

    Really every breeding is a toss of the dice. In dogs had a buff male bred to a black female - first litter 8 puppies, 1 black 7 shades of buff/silver.

    Repeat breeding of same parents again 8 puppies, 1 buff 7 black - no joke.

    Have no idea how color genetics play out in chickens, especially since the hen may have been bred by more than one rooster.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    They are and will forever be "just" mixed breeds. I have three mixed breeds and they are all very cute.

    Here’s the little guys with the proud mother she’s very protective we can’t walk in the garage without getting growled at the punk rocker is a real small rooster so I’m guessing we’ll have some small crazy pullets in no time.

    Turn it off!!
    The hen will keep the chicks warm. The hen will get overheated with the lamp on.
