    Does anyone have or know where I can find a simple chart that tells what percentages you get when crossing colors for the Polish breed? My daughter wants to raise Polish and she is really interested in the color genetics, but it is all strange to me! [​IMG] I am hoping that a SIMPLE chart will help us both out!!

    Send the chart to Ideal Poultry when you find it, not one of the Black crested white polish I ordered from them turned out to be black crested whites, they obviously have no clue what to breed to what to get the color they say they are selling!

    There really isn't a specific color we are wanting to breed for (at least not that I know of! [​IMG] ) But my daughter is very interested in what colors produce what colors and so forth. We both love the Tolbunt, but they are hard to find!

    Quote:Read what they have to say about blue, black & splash. Besides, they are a hatchery, which has its place, but it's not for quality breeding.

    Blue to Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Splash, 25% Black
    Splash to Blue = 50% Blue, 50% Splash
    Splash to Black = 100% Blue
    Splash to Splash = 100% Splash
    Blue to Black = 50% Blue, 50% Black
    Black to Black = 100% Black


    Two doses (dun splash or khaki) breed true, so 100% dun splash or khaki.
    Dun Splash x Black will give (100%) Dark Brown Dun
    Dun Splash x Dark Brown Dun gives (50%) Dun Splash, (50%) Dark Brown Dun
    Dark Brown Dun x Dark Brown Dun gives (25%) Dun Splash, (50%) Dark Brown and (25%) Black
    Dark Brown Dun x Black gives (50%) Dark Brown Dun and (50%) Black


    Cuckoo (B/B) + Cuckoo (B/B) = all cuckoo
    Black male + Cuckoo female = females black (non barring), males cuckoo (B/b) -carrying non-barring/black
    Cuckoo (B/B) male + Black female = all cuckoos, all males (B/b) -carrying non-barring/ black
    Cuckoo (B/b -carrying non-barring/black) male + Black female = of males: 50% Cuckoo [B/b -all carrying non-barring/black], 50% Black, of females: 50% Cuckoo, 50% Black
    Cuckoo (B/b -carrying non-barring/black) male + Cuckoo female = of males: 50% Cuckoo, (B/b -carrying non-barred/black, 50% pure Cuckoo (B/B), of females: 50% Cuckoo, 50% Black.
