    If a Black White Crested rooster breeds with Golden polish and Silver Polish what colored chicks are likely to hatch from both crosses? Thanks.

    You mean a White Crested Black?


    WCB x Any laced color = Black offspring w/varying amounts of white on crest, males will have hints of red or yellow on hackles, saddle, possibly breast.

    Yes, I mean a WCB, sorry. [​IMG] Thanks for the quick answer. So none of the chicks will have gold or silver bodies?

    Not really. Silver Laced hen x WCB rooster will make males that will have silver or gold leakage on a black body, but hardly much.


    IF you do end up with offspring who have more than just some color leakage, then your WCB rooster isn't pure in color.
