    What would be the most likely result of that cross? Any chance the chicks would look like the parent of the opposite sex (pullets being yellow when they hatch, cockerels black-ish).

    Quote:Sorry, but I don't think so. If I'm thinking right, you'd get all barred birds that would look like BRs, because all chicks would inherit extended black and sex-linked barring.
