Game Rooster and RIR

aprilfool(7)May 23, 2008

Someone gave me a game rooster. I like RIR chickens as that is what my mom raised when I was a little girl. Can someone answer this question for me? If I get some RIR hens and put in with my game rooster and they hatch eggs, will the chicks be more game or RIR?

They will have 1/2 the genes from each parent. the males may exhibit a bit more cockiness(maybe) than a purebred RI red, the hens will be less prolific with smaller eggs, .
