    Could it be considered pure?

    Ive heard and i have read that the Warhorse line originated from Irish BrownReds. So if i took my Warhorse hen and bred her to my Irish BrownRed cock could i consider the chicks pure Irish BrownRed?

    No. There is no such thing as pure. It will only be a cross. Everything is a cross or a blend of different families. However you can cross the two families then line breed until you find the correct gene pool that you are satisfied with then lock in the genes by breeding brother to sister. That would be the easiest way among othes for setting a family as a strain.

    Well I have a Lacy Roundhead Cock and a Dan Grey Roundhead Hen and are breeding them. Both are pure so would this be considered pure bred or a cross?

    i'll call them Hawksnestfarm BrownRed. That's it. To my limited knowledge, different breeder use different style of breeding, seeking different goals, means different breeds. I just call them by the name of the breeder/creator, it help promotes some breeder/creator too.
