    just for my curiosity- what would I get if my cuckoo pekin bantie was allowed to hatch her eggs? This morning I witnessed the big Black Australorp having his wicked way with her - not very romantic!- but just want to know what kind of mixture i would get? a middle sized chook or banties or large fowl? and would they be black and sleek or fluffy footed and cute?

    Any ideas?

    Cockerel is meeting his maker tomorrow anyway so not likely she will go broody before her eggs are infertile again anyway but just curious.
    thanks

    There offspring would be Sex-linked.
    As chicks Males would be Black with a White spot on there head and Females solid Black.
    As adults Males would be Cuckoo pattern and Females solid Black.
    Both sexes should have some have some feathering on there shanks and feet.
