    i would expect solid white birds, with maybe some red/black in them?

    PS (im not a genetic guru though) white/bbred makes red pyle after 3-4+ generations.. so maybe something along those lines.. but with the barred gene as well?

    You set the chicken calculator up for recessive white, and old english are dominant white.

    The result said white barred--not sure if you would be able to see the bars, though--dominant white is, however leaky.
