Hi all, I was wondering if it would be possible to create a Red Barred Rock, or conversely a Barred Buff Orpington? Since a White Rock is actually a Barred Rock with the Black Barring suppressed by two doses of recessive white ( I think), then White Rocks actually carry non-sex-linked Barring and that would, theoretically, express itself in offspring - right? So, on a eWh bird with solid color such as a BO, RIR, or even BOxRIR for a nice range of red shades.... would the barring appear from a White Rock parent, but in red form instead of black? And what difference would it make were the White Rock the sire, and conversely the dam? I am guessing that it would be better to have the White Rock as the mother for a more "controlled" dose of barring, and only one dose of recessive white, but maybe I am wrong? Or would it be easier to take a Barred Rock and cross with BO, RIR, or BOxRIR to turn the black into red? I have tried the chicken calculator but it is still too complicated for me, but maybe somebody here has heard of these combinations. I did not like the look of Barred Rock over Buff Orpington that is posted somewhere on BYc, as what I am looking for is a combination that is barred RED without black. Which is why I wonder if adding barring to the solid red or buff eWh birds, would be better than turning black into red.
