    Yes I know a chicken....[​IMG]

    Anyways I have several Barnvelders hens and two Welsumers Roo's (Spelling is wrong) and I cross what will the chicks look like. They will still lay dark eggs right?

    That wouldbe a nice mix! Don't know what they'd look like- besides being chipmunk babies. Surely they'd lay a nice dark egg.

    Do the barnvelders you have lay dark eggs to begin with.

    They should. They came from dark eggs

    I'm thinking they'd be some sort of wheaton, easter-egger looking offspring. Barnies lay dark eggs. If the hens inherited the fullness of the barnvelders- they'd be some really cool birds! I'd go for it [​IMG]

    It would be interesting to see the color on the birds- not just the eggs- go for it!
