If I breed a black Copper Maran rooster over Barred Rock Hen can I get Creole feathering?
Crele is barring over red duckwing (aka black breasted red). Breeding a maran roo to a BR might get you something similar, but not quite the same. If you want to get crele, then look for a a partridge rock or other partridge breed. Partridge and BBR are similar enough to get crele chicks, but a maran's coloring isn't "close enough."
No. You'll get black sex links. Males single barred with a messy barring and a lot of red leakage. Females solid (non-barred) with red leakage.
As stated above, crele isn't just a barred bird with some red. True crele is black breasted red as a base color. Think Welsummer, brown Leghorn, that coloring. Then add barring on top of that.
Thank you for the replies. I'll see what happens. Sex link wouldn't be too bad. Maybe slow grow meat birds.
