    What i mean by that is: What chickens did you cross that look very handsome or pretty? If it is okay, can I see some pics of them? I would just like to know for future refernces.

    awww, I only had one mutt girlie, a mistake. Her mom was an Ideal 236 (leghorn) and daddy was a bantam - Mille Fleur D'Uccle.

    Her name was creamer, she drowned a few weeks ago. A beautiful little girl a soft creamy color with a slightly darker head - like a creamy cuppa coffee. She'll be missed.

    Thank you.

    We weren't planning on her thats for sure, her adopted mom (a bantam) managed to keep that big white egg hidden away from us those three weeks, and we checked under her EVERY day to remove eggs.. [​IMG] I'll look for a picture of her.

    My Blue Orpington/Buff Brahma cross, Glenda. She looks mostly like a black Brahma, is very sweet and a wonderful broody.

    Dash was my best looking mutt, but without a doubt the MEANEST. Gosh, he was a little demon. He was with us for about 9 months before he got to my younger brother and made someone one 'mean' soup. Not me or my family because I couldn't bare to finish the job but at least I still have the good memories before those hormones made their way into focus...

    He's a WCB Polish X Mille Fluer d'Uccle:
