Hamburg colours

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a 25 week old Gold pencilled Hamburg bantam roo running with a 25 week old silver spangled hamburg bantam hen. They are both gorgeous birds. I am wondering whether to hatch any of her eggs but I'm not sure what markings or colourings to expect.

Has anyone experience of such a match? What would the offspring look like?

All of the pullets will be gold and all of the males will be golden (sort of a silvery yellow color). They should have Spangling on their breasts.

Thank you. Do you have Hamburgs?

I had some Silver Spangled, but sent them off to some friends that needed chickens that were more predator-proof. I did keep a full SSH pullet and 2 mixes (SSH x Welsummer and SSH x Blue Andalusian). I can try and get pictures of them when the weather is better here.
