what will offspring look like if you breed a black copper maran roo to a cuckoo maran hen? sex link?
Quote:Yep, They will be Black Sexlink Marans. Black hens ( may have coppering) and cuckoo males.
does anyone have pics? with the hens look pure? i want to breed back to a black copper. will you be able to tell? none are show quailty
Quote:I dont have pics but they should. If you breed Marans to Marans you technically get Marans so they would be pure Marans. Same as if you bred a Black Rock roo with Barred Rock hens you get pure Black Rock pullets and Barred Rock roos ( though they would be heterozygous barred with only one copy and would be darker, same with any sexlink roo)
The males would only have one copy of the barring gene and would leak black and copper
