    We incubated eggs from a Rhode Island Red rooster and a Dominique hen. I read that all males are barred. Do u think these are male?[​IMG][/IMG]

  4. With this cross all of your roosters will hatch with a white spot on top of his head. The pullets will not have a spot at all. You can tell the sex as soon as they are dried off!

  6. Hens from this cross would be black, only the roosters would be barred.
