Well the sex linked Sasso x Cuckoo Marans cross isn't as straightforward as I hoped.

Batch 1, cockerels white, Pullets black...... Textbook.

Batch 2, culled whites, blacks with white spots on head have now turned barred and cockerels!

Batch 3, culled whites, 2 blacks are Pullets, 2 blacks with white faces are cockerels !!!

I guess the white head spot is like the Marans.
I'm not bothered as I find this interesting and they will be invited to lunch with the meat birds, but I dare say I've culled a few Pullets though which may have been white
