Has anyone tried crossing legbars with anything and gotten an interesting result? I was hoping my legbar rooster was the dominant roo, but as I've watched more and more, I really don't think he gets any action, and that my french black copper marans roo gets all the ladies. A friend hatched some of my eggs, and they all popped out black like the marans. So, to clarify: My experiment was all 7 legbar hen eggs, hopefully mounted by the cream legbar rooster, but more probably mated by the french black copper marans rooster. I set 7 of my cream legbar hen's eggs to see what would happen. All seven hatched, and all came out black. But, two of them had a white spot on the head that reminded me quite a bit of the white spot on a cockerel legbar chick. They also both had feathered legs, and none of the others did. At almost 6 weeks old, there's a HUGE difference between the two spotted babies and the 5 solid babies. Here's a picture of one of each to see the difference. I'm wondering if I've hit on another type of sex link. Anyone else have a similar experience? I'd love to try the experiment again, but I'm afraid dh will have me committed. In a month or so, I'll be doing some school hatches and can try then, but I'm hoping other people have been playing mad scientist too.
