    you will have mutts, no BREED, unless you are mating the barred rocks to the barred rocks. They will lay just as well as any other chicken and no, they cannot be sexed by wing feathers.

    The barring gene is VERY dominant, and so most (if not all) of your resulting chicks will be black/white barred. They should be very good layers. [​IMG]
