Interesting hybrids: if they hatch!

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Blue in a shoe, Feb 9, 2015.

  1. One of my naked neck hens is broody. She was fertilized by my GLW roo. If her chicks hatch, does anyone have an idea of what my chicks will look like?

    Yeah it depends on what color the hen is. Very broadly, they often show some sort of black spangled with or without areas of semi laced patterning like half moons. If she's black, the girls would look more or less like black sex links and the roos would be mostly black and maybe show a slight hint of spangling on the red areas on saddle/wings as they mature.

    Do expect at least half of the chicks to have rose combs.. they may look similar or very different from your roo.

    Agree it depends on the color of the hen, for color of offspring. The bird in front was a glw hen under basically a black mixed breed rooster. The bird in back was a slw under a barred male. You can see the incomplete lacing on the red male, you'll probably have something like that but the base color will vary.

    I believe the naked neck gene is dominant, so most/all of the chicks should have nacked necks. I'm not sure about their color, though.
     
  6. The hen is dark brown, with black spots and a single comb
