    Most of my F1 EE roo over white leghorn girls result in splash birds. They are white, with/without cheeks and have black and grey feather splotches. They also have green legs.

    They are prolific layers of light blue eggs.

    The fun happens when you take the F1 progeny and line breed them back to their EE father. The color varieties that result are amazing! You still get very good layers but depending on your roo's genetics, you can also get half homozygous blue egg layers.

    Isn't it amazing what can result genetically in just a generation? I love the colored lawn ornaments! [​IMG]

    I have some pics of my nearly 12 week olds. Parents were: White Leghorn roo, EE hen. When I first announced I gave my broody these eggs on the EE Braggers Thread I was warned that yellow legs tended to indicate cockerels and green legs indicated pullets. Both of mine were hatched with yellow legs and both are indeed cockerels.
    [​IMG]as new hatches
    [​IMG]3 1/2 weeks old

    Today
    [​IMG]Jr Dude
    [​IMG]Jr Dude up close. The other side of his comb has bigger side sprigs. He had a couple flecks of grey feathers as a fuzzy. Those feathers are just now showing up. You can barely see the black one through the white on his wing and the brown streak on the left is another. Only 2 so far.
    [​IMG]Mo's comb. I love his comb it's like a crown. No colored feathers on this boy.
