    I got some white leghorn cross with GSL. The birds are mostly white wiht a few gold feathers on some. Some are all white. Will they lay white eggs? I figured white would be the dominante gene.

    Leghorns do lay white eggs. White langshan and wht giants lay brown. What is she crossed with? Might make a difference....

    I'm not really sure on this but i'm interested to see how it turns out. I think I remember reading in an article on aracauna's and ameracauna's that blue is the most dominant color (thats why EE's are so varied in appearance) green is a blue egg with a thin coat of brwn on top of it and brown eggs are actually white with a thin layer of brown tint over top of the white. I may be mistaken hopefully someone more "in the know " will correct me cause its an interesting thread..... as for your particular cross I don't know but keep us posted

    Well, sex-links lay brown. Maybe you'll get a nice cream color:/

    Since the sex link chickens are a hybrid I don't think they breed true so wow who knows? I guess it would depend on which genes ( the mothers or the fathers) the gsl passed on? sorry i'm not much help ......
