    Roo is a Welsummer, Mama is a Red Sussex. Chicks look like little chipmunks. [​IMG]

    Sounds like they are a welsummer x sussex. Are you asking if they would have a breed name?

    Yup, do they have a special breed name? I am horrible with names, but I am learning. [​IMG]

    Quote:No breed name other than welsummer Sussex cross, crossbreeds or mutt. (some people don't like the word mutt though) Not a thing wrong with crossbred chickens, they end up being really great layers.

    Most people refer to random crossings as a Barnyard cross. The only exceptions to that rule are crosses that result in sex-links.
