    What would I get from a barred rock white rock cross? Just a barred rock with bad barring?

    You'd get a barred rock with white rock...or white rock with barred rock...LOL

    Either way...the barring won't be structured.

    Lara,

    If the male is a barred bird and the female is white, you should get barred birds (like the barred male). If the female carries dominant white then you will get some white birds that leak some black and some barred birds.
