    None will, sorry. I had a white rock roo that I bred with barred rocks, buff orps and EE's, and the chicks looked mostly like their mothers, with a little bit of off-coloring.

    One interesting note-
    I thought that egg color was determined by the male, but the hen I have that came out of the white rock roo and EE hen lays green eggs! I thought they would be brown like a white rock so I was surprised~
