    Quote:the resutls will be sexlinks, females will ge gold bese and males will be silver based(S/s+) too bad you will not be able to sex them at hatch as they will be all solid yellow at hatch... and they mature the males will all white with some black feathers showing up here and there... the females will be all white with some gold leaking mostly on the breast and hackle.. the basque breed genotype is eWh/eWh s+/s+ B/B Co/Co the white white leghorns are ER/ER or E/E(most of the are ER/ER) S/-(sex linked silver) b+/- co+/co+
