Has anyone got pictures or information on poultry that are both barred and mottled.
No photos. I tried that and did not like it. I really could not tell which were barred and which were both barred and mottled. It's possible with some mixes a close examination of the individual feather will let you determine if both are present, but I decided I would go with one and not both. I selected mottled.
a barred and mottled birds would look like this, females would look like a mix of mottled and barred, BUT the males would look almost white
are all cockerals that are mottled and barred an off white colour or do you need to select for it.
ONLY double Barred(two copies of the sex linked barring gene) Mottled males are white, a single barred males will be darker
thanks , what do the dayold chicks from the 55 leghorns look like, are there any breeders on the forum who keep them.
the male chicks would look nearly white, the females would look black with a headspot, they are autosexing
