    I have an EE cockerel, and we are wanting to hatch out some chicks this spring (if we geet a broody hen) We have 5 ee pullets,
    so it wont be a problem hatching out ee's.. but what would happen if we hatched an egg from one of the delawares? or the BO?

    just a mutt chicken? an ee? or should I only hatch out the EE eggs?

    I'm not an expert...first year with my flock but I would think it would make more EE's since they are mixed breeds. It might also give ya some other combos...but mixed breeds none the less.

    Good Luck! [​IMG]
