What lovely pictures! Your darker chick in your other post actually looks like some of the American partridge Silkie chicks, which turn out much darker.
Thankyou! :D

Ah that's great to hear, I really do hope it stays dark in colour. I do want to darken my partridges a bit more so I'm keeping my fingers crossed :fl

I want to do a breeding “project”, but the problem is I may end up with more roosters like mine... The only roo I have (And may ever have of his breed-) is an absolute jerk...

If I don’t hatch randomly, here’s the possible mixed breeds between my chickens...

Possible combos -
Amberlink (pure)
Amberlink x Rhode Island Red (technically just an Amberlink with more RIR)
Amberlink x Easter Egger (Possible green-egg layer coming from this.)
Amberlink x White Leghorn (technically just an Amberlink, but with more WLH)
Amberlink x Silver Laced Wyandotte (may be VERY pretty...)
Amberlink x Plymouth Blue Rock (This is actually, well, technically, 4 different breeds mixed!)
Amberlink x (Blue mix with unspecified breed.)

I will be hatching 5 chicks this spring to expand my free-ranging flock of 12. (Any suggestions on what I should try incubating?)

Personality is hereditary, so you definitely shouldn't use your rooster for breeding.

Since amberlinks don't breed true, anything you hatch will be a mutt so to speak. I have 4 juveniles I hatched from amberlink eggs with an amberlink rooster and each one looks completely different. They aren't the same color or even sizes. There's a small white one with black spots, a large rust one, one that actually looks like an amberlink, and a solid white one it was a fun experiment to see what I'd get and Speckles is just as sweet as her daddy ❤❤❤
I definitely agree not to breed the roo of he's a jerk. My big amberlink boy Russell is a total softy but his brother Charles went in the freezer after attacking my 4yo twice

Do you have a different Rooster you can use for breeding, who isn't a jerk? The jerkiness from the father will pass down to the male offspring.
