Would love help figuring out what resulting chickens I would get from these pairings

    I just got 5 straight run EE's. Odds being what they are, I'll wind up with at least one EE roo, if not more. So a EE roo crossed with an EE pullet or my black sexlink or rhode island red pullets, would that make a mutt for all three combinations? I wouldn't be selling them, I would just like to let one of my hens sit just once for the enjoyment of it. Not something I want to do if the end result would be unhealthy or terribly ugly chickens though. LOL Thanks for the thoughts!

    the two ee's breed together would make 2nd generation ee's, and the others would be ee mixes

    I crossed my EE roo with an Ancona hen - which resulted in some beautiful black chicks with white wing tips. Can't wait till they get old enough to lay so I can see what color egg they'll have.
