i know all of the breeders on this forum ask what would happen if i cross chicken x with chicken y well i feel your pain i am wondering about breeding as well so i believe it is the best interest of this website/forum to introduce a chicken breed calculator this will help with many problems 

i have done research for some proper chicken calculators but they are all in a different language and very very very confusing 

so please BYC provide a breed calculator

It would need to be in English! The current one available is difficult to use because most of it is in German etc.

I will be on/off BYC. If we owe you hatching eggs, please forward us the listing information. We are almost caught up on them and do not wish to miss anyone. Poultry are now laying!

Never seen one before in any language. Is it along the lines of where people would input breeds they cross and what they got from that mix? I had a 2 mystery bantam chicks hatch out last year that look like nothing we own or have ever had hatch before and am wondering what the heck, but I don't know that a calculator such as that would help me. I would however like to know what certain crosses turn out like.

Can someone explain more about what it is suppose to be/do exactly and how it would work? Thanks

I'm a single parent of a special needs teen. We live next door to my elderly parents and help them with the farm. We have 2 Labradors, several pet pigs and Bantam chickens. Together we raise Nubian goats, all sorts of chickens, 2 guard Llamas and a guard Emu and Sebastopol geese. We sell our extra garden produce, eggs, goats milk, Llama poo fertilizer, nursery stock, chicks &/or fertilized eggs!

well this is a pre beta version this is  the drawing board 

we should have breeds such as leghorn then every type of known leghorn white, red etc etc 

then it should be combined with another breed and the fusion should be produced

also if it is an ancona hen which is lightly speckled there should be enough variation to faciliate for the difference for example one hen may be spotted more than another this is to ensure the most accurate results 

its very hard to explain this in writing

I would be open to it.

Would be helpful though if the were options for example:  Rhode Island Red x Blue Orpington (type stuff).

Maybe have a drop down for the color of the breed when there is more than 1 color.

Just a suggestion.

 

What confuses me most is the coloration like Black Breasted Red is the same as Partridge and such.  I do have some of them down but still gets confusing.

Naked Necks:  1 rooster over 5 hens of various colors.

Crested Easter Eggers:  Silver (Has a spangled breast) rooster over 6 hens of various colors.

I would love to see a calculator here and in English.

ETA- would be nice too if it gave possible egg color predictions for hens.

It shows up as English on my computer.  I thought the author was Dutch, so it showing up in German for you is possibly a little odd.  I've been using it for a number of years.  No problems to speak of.  Incredibly helpful and easy to use.


It's hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

 

I laugh in the face of "Recommended Serving Size."  The bag is too big to eat just 14 corn chips.
