What color will they be?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I have a partridge rooster and a splash hen, a black hen, and a buff hen. What colors do y'all think the chicks will be? I've got 13 in the incubator currently, so place your bids!!

That's a good question, I have no idea. I think partridge would be dominant over some of the other colors at least. I haven't bred my black birds yet, but I got a good percentage of buff chicks when I bred with a buff rooster.

The splash will produce blue chicks, possibly with some red 'leakage.' The black hen will likely produce solid black chicks. Again, some chicks may feather in with some red 'leakage.' The buff hen may produce some golden partridge types, or solid red/gold chicks.
