    if the parents are not the same breed, the offspring would be a mix. would need a head shot to see type of comb and maybe a list of type of hens you have

    Looks like a possible Barred rock or Cuckoo Maren mix but I can't tell for sure from the picture

    Something's off here. to get a barred bird, you need a barred parent. None of the breeds you listed are barred. White rocks are known to hide barring under the dominant white, but I've not heard of Leghorns hiding barring.

    I know, we're just as stumped as to where the coloring is coming from,
    As we don't have any barred except for 9 week old Plymouth Rock chicks.

    Could the whites be something like that Ideal 236 cross that Ideal Hatchery sells, they say it is a cross of 3 strains of White Leghorns and a white egg barred breed cross etc? Or some thing like the California Whites another generations down? Would they look pretty much like WL, but the barring could be hidden?

    I'm assuming WL stands for White Leghorn.

    Are you sure the rooster is purebred leghorn.
