    I would say a possible 50% Barred coloring. The rest should vary and throw a nice variety. Since the comet is a cross already I would say prepare to be amazed. [​IMG]
    One of my uncles had a Barred Turken hen.....the mother was Barred and the father was Red.

    Is he sure it is a hen? I thought if the mother was barred and the father wasn't only the male offspring would be barred?

    Quote:Sure....could be just an oddity though and I might never see one like that again. Mother Nature can be wonderful.
