You know those swirly milk chocolate/white chocolate hershey kisses? I was eating some of those while checking my other thread and then it came to me...
I want to try to make Barred Chocolate Orpingtons! I'd have to import half of the parents, though, and manage to keep some Chocolate Orpingtons separated in another pen so I can produce pure Chocolate Orpingtons aside from the crosses.
Here's what I got on the chicken calculator, correct me if I'm wrong please:
Chocolate (Orp) X Barred (Corrected: Rock instead of Cochin) = 50% Black Unicolor Barred (Split Chocolate) and 50% Chocolate Unicolor
Black Unicolor Barred (Split Chocolate) Mutt x Chocolate Orp = 25% Black Unicolor Barred, 25% Black Unicolor Barred (Split Chocolate), 50% Chocolate Unicolor Barred
Is this right?
And then of course I'd have to work on the clean leg thing...
Another thing, last week my mom got an awesome new job and we are looking at moving sometime before next January, so as soon as we move I can import these guys! Isn't that great?
Oh, and I'll also import two or three other things with the Chocolate Orps, I just won't tell you what they are until they get here I have decided what I want now.
