    Not sure - There are so many possible things that you could get out of it - you just have to try it and hope you get lucky you get what you want. You should do some reading on genetics, that is helpful to understand what happened after you crossed two birds, and can give you some insight in the future for things like these.

    It will look like the mutt that it is.

    One of the reasons to have purebreds is that you know what they will look like. You mix two different breeds and you have no control over what genes end up where and you could get anything, and very likely the chicks will look different from one another. And you are talking about 2 wildly different breeds, so you'll get a grab bag.
