    Um... those look like checkered rocks.

    Think linear.
    Think barring.
    Black bar, white bar, black bar, white bar, etc...

    Barred Rocks are white barring on black birds. The gene for the barring is sex linked. The male gets a double dose so males are lighter colored than the females which only get one dose.

    That checkered bird must be an Exchequer Leghorn!! [​IMG]
