    We keep a mixed flock, most of our chickens are full sized, but I have 3 bantams. I have a white leghorn rooster, a Self Blue Belgian d'Uccle hen and a red frizzled Cochin hen. What would I get if I let them hatch their eggs out? I've tried doing a little research, but have come up empty. Has anyone ever tried this combination?

    Something white, possibly with some sort of color leak.

    the eggs will probably be white as the leghorn white tops any colored egg gene from what I understand.

    That's what I was thinking, but I wasn't sure if I was understanding correctly. The closest comparison I could find was a white leghorn and a slate blue something. I can't remember what, but 1/2 of her chickens came out blue and the other half were white with blue color streaks. If so, That will be beautiful! That is what I am hoping for! Thanks

    Any Ideas about the White Leghorn and the red frizzled Cochin?

    I was just referring to the EGG SHELL color not the feathering color. Think I must have mis-understood/read the question. [​IMG]
