    if you had cross an Autralorp hen with a Barred hen.. then Only the Roos could have been Barred, not the hens...

    If you cross two hens you wouldn't have any chicks at all. [​IMG]

    LOL I think he meant Australorp roo with barred hen.

    If the hen is barred, only the male offspring will be barred. If the roo is barred, then all offspring will be barred.

    Well.... there is Parthenogenesis, which seems like 4% of white leghorns eggs develope an unfertilized embryo, BUT no chicks have been able to hatch as of yet...BUT... a Tom(wich is a male turkey) was able to hatch and raised to adulthood from a Pathenogenety line of turkey... [​IMG]

    We need to figure out how to do this. With all the city ordinances for not having roos we could make millions.
