    I know that if you cross a Barred rooster over a Wyandotte hen you should get mostly barred chicks. But what happens with a Wyandotte rooster over Barred Rock hens? Gold, Silver, or Blue; doesn't matter. I'm mostly curious what a laced rooster over barred hens produces.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Gold Laced Rooster over a Barred Hen -- Roosters are Black Barred / hens Black
    Silver Laced Rooster over a Barred Hen -- Roosters are Black Barred / hens Black
    Blue Rooster over a Barred Hen -- Roosters will come Blue Barred and Black Barred / Hens will come Blue and Black

    Yep and they should have rose combs too.

    Urgh. I feel like an idiot. I didn't even think of Silver/Red/etc over Barred.

    Huge thanks. My brain wasn't working.

    Sure, at about 6 weeks like most chicks [​IMG].

    But there's no sex linkage to ID them at hatch, if that's what you're asking.
