I have a nice Copper Maran roo and a blue (all the way) hen. Anyone know what I would end up pairing up those 2? Also, I have a pen of bantam cochins- a splash roo over one black, several blues, and one girl appears lavender. We always end up with some (what appears) lavender chicks- does this mean the roo has a recessive gene for that (almost all of the other chicks are blue or splash- we haven't had a black yet)? Thanks all- I'm just beginning to learn about chicken genetics!
