Okay I am thinking about getting some cochins. I would like to get some black and some blue to start out with. My questions is , is blue a modifier of black? or is the black you get when breeding blues a completely different color of black? I guess the question would be if I got some cochins that were bred to be black and crossed them with a blue, would I get blue chicks? I can figure out any type of horse color genetics but chickens are so confusing.
