What colour would you get by mixing a mottled buff hen and mottled black cockerel?
Ok, thank you!Mottled black, probably with some buff leakage according to: http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm#kipcalculator though it does say there's a possibility of some white, which seems odd to me, depends what other genes they might carry hidden behind the obvious.
Ok thank you!Probably the reason it says may get some whites is because some self buffs are said to carry dominate white.
Buff is a strange color to cross. Everything about buff isn't even fully understood yet.
Most crosses like that end up with anywhere from some buff color in the hackle and breast area like a black sex link to half or three quarters of the front part of the bird being Buff.
And yes they will also be mottled.
