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?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

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, .
