    So I have a new incubator to try out. I wanted to hatch a batch of eggs before it gets too late in the season. The only local hatching eggs I could find are Brahmas. Light and Buff roosters over White, Dark and Buff Hens. Anybody know what colors might result from this hatch? Thank you!

    A mix of any of the colors. For instance, you may get a light brahma with dark patches or a buff brahma with a large white spot (I have one of those).

    Here's an example of the mixes that can occur. The first pic is my wonderful roo, Thor, who has since passed away. The white one is his son TJ, a mixture of Thor and one of my light hens.

    And what If I cross,
    1. Buff Brahma over a Light Brahma?
    2. Buff Brahma over a Dark Brahma?
    3. Buff Brahma over a Partridge Brahma?
