So.. I want to see if any of the chicks that hatch for this HAL might be his. He was black barred with tons of red & gold leakage, full on beard / fluffy face. The kids called him the pretty one, so much flashier than the rest of our chickens. Is barring dominant? Can barring be identified at hatch? I think the barring would be the 1st clue if he fathered any. Any tips on identifying any of his chicks? Thanks
Sorry about your roo
If he was "double barred" then all his babies should be barred, if he was "single barred" then half his babies should be barred. Barring is sex-linked dominant I think. Now I started talking genetics... gonna stop here before I get into too much detail and bore you lol
