Before I spend hours upon hours scouring the internet, I figured I'd ask all you knowledgeable people...

Is it possible to have one bird not only HAVE, but also SHOW both barring and lacing at the same time?

I know that barring is a sex linked gene and lacing is, uh, I don't know the word, but needs to have two copies? I don't know anything else. These genetics are complicated.

I think the mess may be correct. I've seen birds posted on here that look to carry both, but most of those are of questionable parentage so we don't know for sure.

I do have one hen that, best I can figure, is either a pure barred Rock or bsl rooster over a slw hen. She has barring, and some messy lacing (I think) on her tail.





I'm not sure if the color on the lower chest and wings is barring or lacing. The pics aren't great, but the tail has definite lacing, just very smudged and messy.

I believe my pullet has both here is pics, but she is young so she may change and her breed is unknown as she came from TSC.
