What would a person get with a cross between a Brown Leghorn Rooster and a White Leghorn Hen?
Sexlinks, Except you wont be able to sex them as all of them will be white at hatch thanks to ER(Birchen) allele and the Dominant white gene. they will all turn out mostly all white
If they can't be sexed at hatching are they Truly sex link chicks? or just white leghorns?
well their Genotype is of Sex links(females will be gold while Males will be heterozygous for the dominant sex linked Silver) so yeah they are truly sex linked. BUT as I said they cant be sexed at hatch because all of them will be white at hatch. you can thank ER and I (ER Birchen and Dominant white I) for that
Gotcha! and Thanks!!
I'm thinking you will get leghorns in different colors and patterns. But hey, at least they will still be leghorns.
No. just a single Phenotype and Genotype.
this much i true.
