    If anyone has a pic I am curious what the cross will be. I ended up with 3 WLRC hens and I already raise the Dark Cornish and wanted to cross. Thank you so much!

    The Cicken calculator says 50% black patterned red incomplete laced and 50% white patterned red incomplete laced.

    So some will look like a single laced black and some will look like not really great marked WLR.

    It will be interesting for sure. I almost sold the WLRC hens but their patterns really started to develop after 5 months and they have turned out really pretty; so I decided to keep them and breed them to my dark Cornish roo. [​IMG]

    when you cross these two you will get a deeper red in the WLR but you will end up with doulbe lacing and pooer lacing however if you are breeding for WLR you recover the lacing in a couple of genrerations. THe bird above is a Juliee bird that is the same as a dark cornish where the black is replaced by white.
