    most, if not all of the chicks will be barred, roosters pass on barring to all offspring. If only one of his parents was barred, then he will only have 1 barring gene, so you could get some nonbarred chicks when bred to a non barred hen.
    If you breed him to some welsummers or barred rocks, you could get some crele looking chicks

    it is hard to find pure bred heritage birds here. it is either production birds from the factory, or barn yard mixes.

    should be a fun project.
