Ok... Here ya go... Mom is pure white... Dad was black with gold leakage... This is what I got... AND the white/grey/black one has pink skin... Yup. SO, when you just randomly mix, you will just have to wait. It's like Christmas. LOL

 

At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

AND you will have special fun, since Mom is not a solid grey. I see shades of brown in there.

It depends on the genetic makeup of your birds, not just what they look like. You are unlikely to get standard colored birds, but that doesn't mean they wont be pretty.

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

I agree. Definitely see leaking colours.

White covers all colours, so who knows what else the father has in his parentage. I've had a white male pop up out of a buff x blue. Showing that the lines were not pure (correct me if I'm wrong here). White to white (even if they pop up like mine did) will only produce white.

White to any other colour is like rolling the dice. Or a box of chocolates wink.png
