I have 7 new chicks (they will be olive Eggers). Being raised by a broody.

DAD is a Cream Leg Bar.
MOMS are Black copper Marans and Welsummer.
6 of 7 are Marans type looking.
1 is yellow with a tiny eye stripe

Congratulations on your new babies! 😊
Making olive eggers I see!
I know that head spots are seen with barred chicks, and the CLB father is barred, so it may mean they are boys, but from what I understand, the hen has to be the barred parent to get the sex linking quality. I honestly do not know enough to be very helpful.
I would do a search in the threads and see if anyone else has tried this cross and what results they got.
You may not get too many responses today because of the holiday.
Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!😊
