    I've got some eggs in the incubator from my White Leghorn. The roo is a RIR. Can anyone tell me what I will end up with and I would like to see or know where I can see a picture. Thanks

    It will look, well, like a mutt... I've got some that are white with cinnamon sprinkled on wingtips and breast... Some are brown with horrible looking mixture of feathers on their necks... I'll post pics in a bit.
    these will be 6 weeks old on friday

    Thanks, I have looked every where for a picture. I also have BR with RIR and saw it would be a Black Sex link. I have some pure RIR's too.
