    I know that some crosses will produce a chick that can be sexed at hatch. I've read about a "barred" hen and a solid rooster, but I have the opposite, I was wondring if it would be true. Will the males from this cross have the barring, or not?

    Thanks!

    You'll probably get barring on both the girls and the boys.

    You'll get some variation of barring on all the chicks, so they cannot be sexed at hatch, sorry.

    Thank you! That clears it up, then! I'll just have to wait the standard 4-6 weeks to confirm that all of my chicks (if they hatch!) are roos!
