    hi, im pretty new to wyandottes, just wondering what colour I would get by crossing a barred cock with a white hen, as I have a white hen and my friend has a barred cock?

    http://home.kpn.nl/h.meijers69/kruising.html The English version of the calculator. If your male is homozygous for eb/eb locus and dominant white ,and homozygous for barring...and the female is eb/eb locus and homozygous for dominate white...
    you might get:
    Females: white patterned gold partridge/brown barred
    Ratio = 1/2 = 50%, minimum of animals to breed: 2

    Males:
    white patterned gold partridge/brown barred
    Ratio = 1/2 = 50%, minimum of animals to breed: 2
