white orp x buff= recessive white crosses are difficult to determine offspring- the recessive whites do not carry a certain genotype-I do not want to even guess

white leghorn x buff leghorn= chicks will be white and adults white

buff leghorn x white leghorn produces a different phenotype. Female chicks will have buff faces/heads while adult females will have buff front end and white tail end. The amount of buff in the adults can very. They will not show all of the buff until they are sexually mature. Males will be white as chicks and adults.
