    I have White Rhode Island Rooster. If I breed him to a Red Rhode Island Hen or a New Hampshire Hen what will I get? Will the offsprings be a good egg layers or not? Does this kind of mix have a name for it?

    If you mix Rhode island red with another rhode red,it'll just make another.
    If you mix Newhampshire reds with a Rhode island red,you'll make the Production Red.
    Will they be good layers?Yes!

    RIW rooster X RIR or NH hen will just give you a mixed breed, although the offspring should be good layers. If you reverse it, and breed a RIR or NH rooster with a RIW hen, you will get Red Sex Links, which are egg laying machines.
