Color genetics. Dark Brahma.

post #1 of 4

Hi there, I am a beginner at chicken color genetics but I am wanting and willing to learn. So my question is. Is if I have a male and female brahma that are phenotypically dark brahma is there any possibility of buff if mated together?

To my knowledge, a pure dark and a pure dark would only equal dark offspring. 

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

No. You will not get any color other than 'Dark', which is technically a silver partridge color.

Silver is dominant over gold/red coloring.
