Welsummer cross Wyandotte?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

OK I have a LF Partridge Welsummer hen and a Golden laced Wyandotte rooster, this spring I am planning on breeding the two of them and I was wondering If any of you had some pictures of the same cross?

 

Please can you post some pics, and My wyandotte bantam roo is quite big compared to my neighbours bantams (he breeds Welsummer's and loads of golden and silver laced Wyandotte's) he gave me the big bantam because all my hens are LF, he has mated with all my other hens but he hasn't managed to mate with my Welsummer (from what I've seen)  so is there any likely hood of him actually mating with her?

 

Here's My roo

And heres my hen

 

 

I should also mention i got here from the same guy as the wyandottes and she isn't weary of hens she just doesnt like the roo, when we introduced my two wyandottes, because my ex bats hadn't seen a roo before they were all very bold towards him and one hen dominated him straight away but now there at a dead lock, but when he would come near my welsummer she would run away.

I am the parent to a gold duckwing Phoenix trio,1 Welsummer hen, 2 Ex-Battery hens, a silver laced Wyandotte pair, 3 gold laced Wyandotte hens, silver pencilled Wyandotte Hen, 9 Friesian Fowl, a Frizzled rooster and more.

I dont have pics because I have not made such a cross..BUT the genetics of such cross are very simple.. the welsummer hen is wildtype for just about every gene outhere. mating it to a Laced bird will produce more laced birds(not as good laced are father but still ) why? laced birds have Co(columbian) Pg(pattern gene) and Melanotic(Ml) all of them dominant over the welsummer´s recessive counter parts co+ pg+ ml+. also the Wyandotte comb is dominant over the single comb found on the welsummer.

so in theory it will be a wyandotte with welsummer shaping chucked in?

My Wyandotte cross has turned out to look just like a large fowl buff laced Wyandotte rooster, I love him and he's very tame, I will post a picture tonight
