Wyandottes Genetics!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Need some help with this all the information ive found is only for breeding certain colors to others. 

 

With a BLR Rooster I will be Breeding the following Colors and id really like to know the % of Offspring Coloring. 

Ive looked and looked for more answers but i cant seem to find any % with a BLR Rooster. 

 

BLR Roo X BLR Hen

BLR Roo X Silver Hen

BLR Roo X GLR Hen 

BLR Roo X Blue Hen 

 

Now I would Assume Black and Blue is a 50 / 50 for both the Blue and BLR Hens with a potential to have Splash in the mix as well with the Offspring.

 

Any Insight would be nice!

 

Im exploring my options on the best color Rooster To get this year!

 

Thanks!

Your going to have to clear some things up first. lol

 

Is "BLR" Blue laced Red or Black laced Red?

Silver, Do you mean Silver Laced or Silver Penciled? I have yet seen a "Silver" Wyandotte

GLR, Do you mean a Gold Laced? Because there is no such thing as a Gold laced Red.

 

Where did you get the birds from?

Breeding Blue Laced Red over a

Blue Laced Red Hen - 50% Blue Laced Red, 25% Black Laced Red and 25% Splash

Silver Laced Hen - 25% Blue Laced Red (females), 25% Black Laced Red (females), 25% Blue Lace Golden (males), 25% Black Laced Golden (males)

Gold Laced Hen - 50% Blue Laced Red/Gold, 50% Black Laced Red/Gold

Blue Hen - 50% Blue Laced Red, 25% Black, 25% Splash

 

Note ---

These percentages are rough percentages, depending on your birds your numbers could be different some. (hatchery birds will differ greatly)

Also note is the Gold Lace breeding I stated, "Blue Laced Red/Gold", that's because the Gold color of the Gold Laced will dilute the Mahogany Red color of the Blue Laced Red.

Chris09 has given you the possible color breakdowns using those pairings. Which you decide to do will depend on what your goals are.
