    Cause the california grey hen is barred, and a barred hen under a non barred roo will give sex-linked offspring. I'd love to see what that chick looks like at at maturity.​

    i had 3 chicks hatch from the california grey and partridge roo. 2 look like this chick. one was all black with white feet but it died. i cant wait to see what they will look like full grown. the older chick i have has wing feathers coming in. there brown with black stripes on them.

    the California Grey hen is actually NOT Barred, but... sex linked Dilute B^Sd wich is an allele of the Barring gene. one copy of B^Sd makes a Hen or Roo look like Barring, two copies of it(only roosters can have two copies as its a sex linked gene making a Hen B^Sd/- barred looking and rooster B^Sd/B^Sd look almost white)

    let me quote a dear friend of mine.
    Quote:Flowery Leghorns could have the B^Sd Sex linked Dilution gene also. but its not confirmed
