I thought I mixed up my Legbar eggs with Legbar x EE hybrid eggs during my Easter HAL. But I had 3 chicks hatch exactly like this from what I thought were Legbar eggs. Can someone help me figure this out? Here is the picture of one of the chicks when it was a few days old and now at 3 weeks:
That is a pure legbar, a recessive white sport of them,
Should I be happy or shall I cull them? Since its autosomal recessive, my chances are theoretically 25% correct (although I had 3 of the 4 chicks from one hen).
And why is there no barring? Does this gene suppress barring?
be happy because nature has given you a piece of its wonder, and recessive white covers barring
I am happy especially since I saw the pics of some adult whites on rarebreedauctions. They could look pretty cool especially with the blue egg.
Don't worry no culling. In fact I am regretting not buying the ones that were on auction so that I have 2 gene pools to work with (although they probably going to all trace back to GFF)
