    I just candled my eggs and the eggs that were active were all about the same size except 1. The one is where the question lies, the egg was almost full black inside excepts air cell about twice as large as others and were set at same time. Is that normal or OK? Actually 1 more question White LH hen and BR Roo what color will the babies eggs be if it is a hen?

    I hatched 6 eggs awhile back white leghorn rooster and golden comet females and got 5 white chicks and one that was barred black and white.

    Don't really know but I think you could get about any color combination with the BR male and the LH female. The chicks could be back or white or mixed. Some may have the BR markings and some like the LH.

    I did a cross using my Isa Browns which look similar to a Golden Comet or Red Star sex-link. and some of my chicks came out black too.
