It sounds like you have a hybrid. Which mutation's is hard to
tell without a picture. But "half red beaks" leads me to think
its a peachface and fischer. Fischer/Peachface hybrids are
mules. The hens seems to only lay infertile clutches with this
Why would you breed hybrids? Why muck up the gene pool? Just
something to think about.
