Chick possibilities?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone could guess what the babies from my cockerel could look like?

He is a barnyard mix, I'm guessing maybe RIR cross with a dominant white breed?

I want to know what the chicks would look like from him and my silver laced cochin, and my EE.

a little hard to tell now because he hasn't feathered out yet

2 Buff Orpingtons, 1 red sex link, 1 bantam, 1 Silkie rooster who acts much bigger than he really is, 2 young Pekin ducks, 1 young Mallard, 1 duck of an undetermined breed, 2 mixed breed chicks,1 Barred Rock pullet, and 1 easter egger pullet.  named in order:

Lucy, Ethel, Lucky, Aunt Bea, Ricky, Lemon Meringue, Daisy, Ping-Ping, Jake, Fred, Phoebe, Saoirse, and Esther.

You will have to wait and see. We can't give you any idea of what the future chicks would look like, when we don't know the heritage/genetics of the birds in question. 

 

I can say a few things though

  • A blue egg layer when crossed to a brown egg layer = green eggs
  • A green egg layer when crossed to a brown egg layer  = green eggs and/or brown eggs
  • Feathered feet and beards are incompletely dominate = most chicks will hatch with feathered feet or beards, provided a parent has them

Have you played with the chicken calculator?

I plugged in the ISA brown male ( I know that's not exactly what you have, but I think the genetics are pretty simialr) and a slw (genetically the same as the Cochin, just add the fluff and feathered legs, and straight comb) and it came up with incomplete laced gold and red birds. Could be very pretty :). Your EE is a wild card, genetically. You can play with the calculator and see what is closest to her color and look at potential colors.
