This is a place to share reviews of your mixed breed chickens. Mixed breed chickens have no recognized standard and cannot be exhibited.
I know that there is a wide variety of mixed breeds, but I bought my chickens from a breeder that is a mix of two particular egg-laying breeds. I have ten girls who are great egg layers and they run towards the back door almost every time it is opened, following me around when I go outside in the hopes that I will give them some scraps. They room the yard during the day foraging and at night they go right up. We have had them for a couple of years now and unlike some other breeds these hens always go to their nest boxes to lay even when there are plenty of places in the yard they could make a nest if they choose to. My one complaint that I have against them is that if I don't let them out of their coop and they get bored that they tend to break their eggs sometimes....
