    Ive used a white bantam rooster over LF brown hens before.
    Out of about 20 chicks or so all ended up being the same size. Slightly bigger then halfway between the parents size.
    We had one completely white rooster and a few completely white hens. Others looked like poor examples of pyle. Hens were white with reddish breast and very few black specks here and there. Roosters were white with a lot of red and gold on hackles, backs etc. And small amounts of black here and there. The biggest amounts on flight feathers and tail.
    The white hides the black color better then the red/gold.
    I would expect yours to turn out almost completely white with random black specks here and there. A lot like the austra white hybrid.
