So we just brought home our flock yesterday. We got 5 buff orpinton hens, 1 jersey giant hen, and 1 california white rooster. We are raising mostly for egg production, but would like the option for meat later on. My question though, is the rooster we got going to work for us? I probably should have looked into the rooster a bit more, but he was just WAY too pretty to pass up. I used to breed snakes, so I have a general knowledge of how genetics and crossbreeding work. But I'm clueless with chickens lol I know the CA is a mix between a Ca grey and a leghorn, but can he breed with the hens I have now, and give us more breedable chickens? Or is crossing chicken breeds a general no-no if you want to keep breeding the offspring?
