I have a RIR cockerel who I am thinking about breeding with my Light Sussex and Maran hens. I think I will get Gingernut Rangers from the RIR x LS cross. But not so sure what I will get from the Marans cross. I have 2 cuckoo Marans and a copper Marans so would be two different types. I think the chicks would be sex able at hatch but wondered if anyone had done any of these crosses before? Or could suggest any other interesting crosses I could do with the RIR boy- I have a CLB hen and various Orpingtons. Any advice / info / suggestions would be much appreciated.
