    Hey all,
    I want to hatch ameraucanas soon but I also have barred rock hens. Does anyone have any pics of what this cross looks like??

    Thanks!

    The males will be barred and the females black

    The males will hatch with a white spot on their heads. The pullets will have a black head.

    So the chicks still exhibit the sex linked traits even though they are crosses?

    As long as you use the Amaraucana rooster and a barred rock hen.
