    I have some birds I'm trying to breed, extreme beginner here. Both are pure breed, but different lines. One, how do you calculate the percentages that they are? My hen is a H x V back to H, and my cock is an F1 cross H x V, which is easy enough, he's 50%/50%. And what percentages do you get from my cock and hen crossed? Hope this makes sense, I'm very confused. lol

    Thanks,

    Alright that did not work out too well, you can't read the text in the chart.
