    Hello all and thanks for your responses.
    I have for the first time decided to create a hybrid,
    I have crossed a pure white leghorn hen with a blue French maran and was wondering what the outcome will be.
    I love the amount of eggs of the leghorn but they Are to flighty to handle for me.
    I love the Marans as they are dead friendly and just love the colour of the eggs.

    So question is if I'm lucky to get some hens what will the birds look like, temperament and egg colour.

    Thanks in advance

    my leghorn crosses were not as flighty as the leghorn but not as tame as the appenzeller or rhode island red. Nice birds-your birds should lay a brown egg. The birds will be white.
