    I have a Light Brahma who is sitting on eight eggs. The eggs are from my four different chicken breeds to include, white leghorn, RIR, Buff Orpington and the Light brahma. What should I expect those chickens to look like? Do they turn out to look like mutts or do that take on the roos looks which is a cuckoo maran?

    I'm not sure on the leghorn. They may be barred or they may be pretty much solid white. The others should all be barred. You may have some red or gold leakage on the RIR or BO, especially with the roosters, but the basic look should be barred like the daddy. The Brahma chicks should have feathers on the legs.
