This is a Rhode Island Red and Cream Reese Legbar mixed. Any thoughts on sex?
A Cream Legbar crossed with a Rhode Island Red will not produce a black and white chick. Either you are mistaken about which birds were the parents or you are mistaken about the parents' breeds.
Well I have an Easter Egger Rooster as well. I assumed it was the CRL because he is gray in color.
The cream gene of Cream Legbars is a recessive dilute gene that only affects gold base coloring. They are genetically the same color as Brown Leghorns, but with the cream gene diluting the gold/red coloring and the barring gene, which applies 'bars' of white across a bird.
Since the cream gene is recessive, cross bred chicks carry the dilute gene, but it doesn't express.
Is the Easter Egger silver?
These are my only 2 roosters and my hens are all full RIR
Here is when it was a day old
The Easter Egger is silver, carrying gold/red. He's the daddy.
Some of the hens in this photo are red sexlinks, not Rhode Island Reds.
Wow, thanks. Any idea on the sex? I never thought he was the dad but he is the dominant Rooster
