    I am trying to find out info on breeding my White Leghorn rooster to my Brown Leghorn hens. Does anyone know what this would create?

    For color, you'll get basically white birds (Leghorns are dominant white) with brown/black flecks in the feathering. For laying, they'll lay as well as the parent stock, so pretty well.
