    Hello, I'm trying to breed my chickens for color not egg color. With that being said my question is, if I cross a legbar rooster with an ameraucana will the color interchange or would it be half legbar color and half ameraucana color?
    I appreciate it

    Partly depends on what color the Ameraucana is. You can try this tool and see if you get any answers... It gives you a basic outcome but may not account for leakage. The second drop down tab is in English...
