    [​IMG] Welcome from Arkansas! Sorry I know little about gentetics but if you repost your question on the Breeding/Genetics forum you might have better answers.

    Good luck!

    Welcome :) I'm not sure about the answer to your question, but I know white leghorns are generally dominant white, so I'd imagine you'd get a lot of white offspring from that pairing, but you should ask the wizards in breeds/genetics ;)

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I once crossed a black roo to some white hens and the results were everything from black to white to black and white! I'm not sure about leghorns though. Better to ask the genetics gurus.
