Hi hope all are doing great.... I was just wondering if the chick color of a brown leghorn, that stripe pattern could be breed into say a gold based bird? say a Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire... ?


thanks a ton for all the help

yes it can be, given the right genes all the black and markings can disappear giving you a clean colour.

i have no idea as i have never seen one. not sure if they are in australia. however a lot of old english game start off with wild type colouring and end up fairly clean coloured like the gingers. also in my breeding of pekins i have often ended up with red coloured roosters when they were so promising with autosomal barring from the eb gene...hoping for laced birds.

I have only seen pics of them and the chicks look like they are a red with stripes.... but what concerns me is the leg color... being white... and my Hampbars being yellow.... I'd like to breed them so they are very easy to sex, lay great and get the strongest barring I can get in the females.... I plan to use a double mating with them where as I use the females with the best barring and the males that are burnt orange in color ... very much like one of the males I have now...

maybe you are thinking of rhodebars? as in legbars. autosexing of a breed using the barring gene. ignor my first comment as i got it all wrong in understanding you.
