    Quote:the Barred Pattern(Sex link Barring on a Extended Black bird) is Dominant to most things, depending on the sex used on the matings, one could end with a mostly barred bird or a mostly black bird with some leakage of ground color..

    Quote:Sex links. Barred roosters, Black hens...
    Barred Boy will have a white head spot on their head

    None Barred Black hen, don't have head spot

    Quote:all chicks will be barred. you could tell the boys from the girls(boys have larger head spot)

    Quote:all chicks will be barred. you could tell the boys from the girls(boys have larger head spot) in this case Darkbrow or/ad Columbian will ground color leakage in the boys chest when adults..
