    I have a Barred Rock x Game bird mix. He is slimmer and more gammy looking but he is barred crele looking. He's very pretty and as this spring approaches I'm wondering what the offspring would look like if I crossed him with Barred rock X leghorn hens and leghorns. If you can please share pics:)

    Since it's the rooster carrying the barred/crele gene, you'll get barred/crele chicks of both sexes from him. Because both of his parents were not barred, he is only carrying one barred gene. This means he will also have some solid/non-barred offspring as well when mated to other non-barred hens.
