So I have this rooster from a mixed flock that looks to be a new hampshire red and a cream legbar, I've hatch some of the cream legbars eggs out and 2 were from the legbar, but after a while one of them started to grow a lot of white on its feathers as you could tell in the pic while the other only has a bit of white. Any ideas why have white? and apparently they should be black sex links from the barred in the cream legbar so the boys would have more barred in than the hens so it's it safe to assume they're pullets?

Is this rooster the one pictured or? If that's him why do you assume CCL? I don't see any barring.
Then you say you hatched some CCL eggs and two were from CCL? What does that mean? You hatched eggs from CCL hens and two were from that rooster? Or?
Too much confusion to even try to answer the question.

I have a CCL hen and hatched those eggs and I'm sure the father is the red cockerel there.

I said 2 were the cream legbars because I have a leghorn that lays the same coloured eggs.

Cream Legbars are supposed to lay blue eggs, and Leghorns are supposed to lay white eggs.

So if they are laying the same color eggs as each other, I think one must be a different breed than you think it is.
Agreed
This went from confusing to even more confusing.
Sounds like there's unknown mixes involved.

I have mostly back yard breeds but a pure cream legbar. The leghorns offspring is blue coured fluff into white. Here's a pic of the leghorn and it's chicks. Presumed barred pekin dad for chicks.

Still confused @NatJ and the @Themoonshiner? The cockerel there is the presumed dad of the chicks, and the CCL hen is the mother of those 2 chicks, I have a leghorn that lays blue egg but got her from a mixed flock and hides blue (or lavander).

I hadn't posted again because I don't really know what to say about the chick. Maybe it will become more clear as it grows up. Colors and patterns can change quite a lot in the first few months.

Some of the reasons I am still confused:

--With so many cockerels in the flock you photographed, I would not be presuming anything about who is the father of the chick.

--Your "leghorn" is something else, because Leghorns do not lay blue eggs.

--The Cream Legbar might be the mother of the chicks, but right now I cannot guess what set of genes is causing them to look the way they do.

I have no doubt the CCL is pure. And I'm sure the red hampered is the father because when the chicks were born, it was a chickmunk patter with red necks. And the leghorn I only call it that because it it resembles one. Its easyer to say than chicken I don't know what it is.
