So I have recently acquired quiet a color variety of Cochins and I am a little curious about future breeding. My Roo is a Barred. I have been told that a Barred roo will produce mostly barred offspring no matter what color he is bred to. My girls are Solid White, Solid Black, Gold Laced, Barred & Mottled. I know it is nearly impossible to even being to guess at what will be produced since we don't know what genes each chicken is carrying but I was wondering if it is true that the barred gene is more dominate and most of the offspring will be barred?
