Silver Dorking x Guinea Fowl ?
« on: October 22, 2011, 02:11:22 pm »
Daft question for you chicken experts, We have seen our Silver Dorking cock covering one of our Guinea fowl hens , and the Dorking hen  started sitting on a clutch of Guinea eggs, then this morning we found these two chicks running round with the Dorking hen,
Question is : what have we got ?

Even the eggs are different to standard Guinea eggs.

I saw my Cornish Game cockerel quite brutally cover a guinea fowl though I imagine it was more of a power thing than a marriage. No strange chicks came of it though.
Maybe the lighter coloured chick wil be a Lavender Guinea Fowl?
