    I don't know what they will look like, but the tail length would be inbetween the phoenix's and the cochin's. It would also have a single comb. I imagine it would turn out to be a great looking bird!
    Post Pics when they hatch I would like to see!

    Quote:well she just layed an egg. im going to let her lay a cluth of them,just to see if she'll go broody on them.
    i knew she was getting close. im so happy. now if only my phoenix would lay an egg. she got in the nest and the rooster gets in the nest and calls her and clucks to her to let her know this is a good spot but she hasnt laid yet. hopefully soon so then ill get some full blooded phoenixs!!!!

    You would have a start on some ohiki typed birds. Thats how ohikis were made from originally crossing, selecting and crossing somemore from Onagadori and Cochins and since we have no true Onags here in the US, Phoenix and the few good Onag desendants would be what would have to be used. As far as color, the pullets would be silver colored and the roos would have more of a silver pattern with a yellowish sheen over the silver. They should be really cool looking birds.
