    It would depend on what your particular strain of white rocks are masking but you would most likely get mostly black, muttly looking chicks, unless your roos are masking barring, then most or all of the chicks will be barred. No definite way to know until you do it since you are using a recessive white breed and not knowing what they are masking.
