What do you suppose would come of this cross?
Hard to say I tend to think that it might look something like a Delaware.
That is the answer I got on another chicken forum. I might hatch some out next year and see how quickly they grow and how big. If they are worth feeding it might be a cross for our place!
Quote:They could be white or Black/barred. White Plymouth Rock should be recessive white but sometimes they carry the dominant white gene. If the bird carries dominant white, the offspring will be white. If the white is recessive white then the offspring will be black with barring-like the domi roo.
I can't wait to see what happens with them. At least they will be meatier than my leghorns, LOL.
Yep, they won't look like Delawares, either solid barred or white ghost barred depending if the particular strain of WRs carries dom white. And they should have rose combs.
I have pics of a ghost barred cockerel here in post 69 https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=8134881#p8134881
That ghost barring is really pretty. :O
Here is what came of this cross. I LOVE this rooster. Getting him some white rock hens as soon as possible. His temperament is awesome. He is just so nice.
Thank you. I wanna make some hens of this cross to cross back to him eventually.
