If I want white leghorn type and put him onto a Dom hen , will I get just the 50/50 white and some barring off spring? I want the leghorn type with the barring. Should I then put that generation of barred pullets back onto a dom rooster? Also the ear lobe on a leghorn is white, what I can remember that color is recessive, so will it change over to red after several generations with the dominate red earlobe of the dominique?

The F1 would all be white with some black spots. Carry out a sibling mating to get some barred ones and then breed back to the Leghorns and repeat the cycle. The easy way would be to buy some Barred Leghorns or some California Grays(Production Blacks).
