    Hi there....does anyone know if it is possible to get barred rock bantams by crossing a barred rock bantam male with a white rock bantam female....or if it is possible to get them by then breeding back the daughters of the first cross back to their father,the barred male....please respond only if you know for sure and no guessing...thanks.......i have a barred male and 2 white hens that look like they would be a good matchup and would make chicks with some good vigor i figure...????

    Barred rocks were created by crossing Dominiques and Black Javas. You may get back to barred rocks by mating back to your roo , for several generations, but I think it would be easier to just get a couple more from a hatchery.
