    I have a lavender ameraucana X white leghorn hen that I want to breed to my barred rock roo. She is white with black speckles, will she be able to throw anything other than white?

    Yes- she's not pure for the dominant white. Expect half of the chicks to be white like her, with the rest being barred.

    If you don't want any more whites, don't keep the white offspring for breeding. Once dominant white is gone from a line, it's 'gone forever'.
