    Not sure if this is the place to post this, sorry if its not.

    But if I were to breed a BO Rooster with a Isa Brown pullet, what would be my likely outcome be?

    Seems like the logical answer, sorry I'm kinda new to this.

    Wasn't sure if some chicks could be half BO or half Isa brown. Yes I'm lame I'm aware.

    Well, if you're putting a BO with an Isa Brown, each chick will get 1/2 of the parent's DNA. So, each chick will be half BO and half Isa Brown. But, I "believe" Isa Browns are a mix of two different breeds, so you'd get a bird that is 1/2 BO, 1/4 Rhode Island White and 1/4 Rhode Island Red.
