    Will the eggs still be white? I have 3 white leghorn pullets and a BO cockerel, I had him with some barred rock hens & they kept attacking him so I trade them for some white leghorns!! If i breed theis 2 breeds what will the babys look like? Thanks

    White is usually dominant, so my guess would be that you would have white birds that lay mostly white eggs. You might get a couple light brown eggs.
