    According to the chicken calculator it is possible to make a barred birchen color.

    Has anyone tried this and do you have pictures?

    I think the hens and roosters should be beautiful with the silver neck hackle and saddle with the bulk of the body being barred.

    Not tried it but it can be done. What do you have that you could use for the breeding? I have made barred birds before.

    Was thinking of ordering some birchen and barred Cochin bantams.

    In theory it would give a barred bird with white hackle.

    Surely someone has done this cross
