I blame the smartazz phone
Thanks Ravyn. It turns out all of the offspring should be white (silver) since silver is dominant and the rooster is the silver carrier.
Silver rooster (SS) x gold hen (s+-) gives Ss+ (silver roosters) and S- (silver hens). So if I get a pair and breed them together I may endup with 25% gold.
I need to get down and see if they are much different. So far none of them have REALLY looked like a cockerel.
I agree the heads and neck look pullet . nice bodies . could be the lavender causing the lacing on the saddle to be like it is .very nice .hard to believe the lavenders you ordered last spring have young ones that age already .
Likely as soon as I get the bator emptied
Beautiful birds, by the way! Best of luck on the project, and I wish I could help, but the genetics still warps my brain for some reason. I understand a few factors, but it still pizzes me off that chicken genetics are so complex!
Ravyn and Walnut are always the first ones I think of when I have those kinds of questions.
me too to much work I like the simple S H chart you know put disun wif thatun and see what the chit happens very simple breeding what you think?.

Nice looking birds, but not as nice to my eye as the orginal.
Here is what I came up with:
Change E locus to E/e+ only on the lavender hen, then hit calculate crossing. I'd call those black patterned silver incomplete laced pullets.
I have been using that for over an hour now and that's about what I got. The only thing I cant figure out is that it doesn't allow a partially laced bird with any amount of E. I'm wondering if the black Wyandottes used for the lavender project were ebeb partridge brown.
Is that possible?
If I use the genetics you have there except put ebeb instead of EE on the pullet then I can get a partially laced bird from the calculator.
