    What breed of rooster is that? He looks like a legbar mix.

    Barred rock cross: If he has one copy of the barring gene, all his male offspring will be barred and 50% of his female offspring will be barred. If he has two copies of the barring gene, all his offspring will be barred. They will have silver or gold leakage.
    New Hampshire red cross: if he has one copy of the barring gene, 50% of his offspring will be barred. If he has two copies, all will be barred.
