    hi,
    i have put eggs in the incubator of my white leghorn,
    i've seen her being mated by my light brahma rooster,
    its funny watching because he is so big that he has to
    put his legs on each side of her to do the deed [​IMG]
    any way, i was wondering if anyone has ever had this cross
    and if anybody know if the pullets will lay well, broodyness, etc...

    i am hoping you can help (i candled tonight and 2 out of 3 of her eggs were fertile)
    thank you in advance for any info,


    luke.

    yes this is the right place to put this thread [​IMG]
    i think the offspring would be a large white bird with a little bit of dark leakage in the tail, saddle, and the hackles

    Nearly all White Leghorns are dominant white so the chicks should be mostly white with maybe some black dots on them. Pea combs is dominant over single so the chicks should be pea combed. And leg feathering is also dominant so they should have some degree of leg feathering as well.

    They should be with White Leghorns being great layers and then adding hybrid vigor to that, they should be good layers of light brown/ creme colored eggs.
