    She grew up to be a pretty hen [​IMG]. If the other girl is her sister, I would breed her in hopes that she carries some of the cream genes since she was easier to identify at birth.

    IMO a very nice hen after all.

    I am so glad to read this as I have exactly the same thing with my chicks, one looks exactly the same as yours, no gold spot but less chipmunky, I will figure out how to post a pic and show you

    Maybe! It will be neat to see if the autosexing rules apply to mixes too!

    I'd love to see pics too! But actually they're created the same way as Gold Legbars (like siblings), so it's not that hard to make them (in fact the first ones were culled since they were going for gold lol).

    yes I know how they were created, but didn't think any were still in existence, hence I'd love to see a picture [​IMG]
