    What would the chicks be? 50%/50% or a not pure colored bird?

    I would guess some khaki/splash colored offsprings, and some smutt blues...you just mixing two birds that are diluted black with two different dilution genes...

    You would get blacks, blues, duns and platinums - 25% of each color if I'm figuring it correctly. Platinum is Andalusian blue and dun mixed. I have this color in my bantam Polish.
