What do you get when you mate
a chicken with a turkey?
You can get a turkey/chicken
hybrid, but for some reason they only produce male eggs.
We recently got a turken
mixed in with our austalorp eggs, which is not a fancy hybrid, just a
breed of chicken that has a neck like a turkey.
I wonder what effect a misfit
like this has on the other young chicks in the mother hen mini flock?
My guess would be that a little diversity would help and each breed
could teach the other some foraging tricks the other might not be aware of.
