Ok I have a basic knowledge of genetics but I am confuse on the answer to this one. I have a chance to get some bronze eggs split to midnight. If I breed these together what will i get? Will it be a 25-50-25 situation or ???? Thanks

If all of the parents are bronzes.. then yes 25 50 25 as for the midnight gene.

How does one get bronzes split for midnight though.... and what does a bronze-mid bird look like.

I have 3 males and 2 females that the peacock was Bronze and the peahen was BS. They look like IB except some white flights. I was wondering also how to get Bronze from them. I was waiting on some Bronze peachicks from a breeder but she had a catastrophic mishap occur and lost all the eggs in her incubator............ so I guess I'll have to wait again until next year.

Quote:You could breed them together, then you would get bronze, bronze bs, bs(blue), and blues.

Your chicks are split to bronze and BS, as BS is a pattern not a color. If you breed them to a bronze you will get the most bronze, but none will be BS.

They should be ready to breed next year, so hopefully I get some Bronze from them. I only gave $15 each for them as 5 month olds, so I just wanted to have some fun since I don't have a clue about breeding to what to get what etc... I've tried to learn but it just bounces off my thick skull......
thank you for that advice, I'll post pics next year.
