    How do I make a red star rooster in the mobile chicken calculator?

    Use a Red male, Rhode Island, and a white female. Believe you have to use dominant white female.

    Hm... that gives me white uncolored offspring. I feel like I've tried it every way possible.

    I know the white has to have silver and I have tried changing the silver setting also.

    Also, if I switch to recessive white with silver I get black chickens.

    It's not recessive as there would be no white with only one genetic indicator. The calculator isn't showing the right color for image is all. Do a second cross with male offspring and suddenly you get white, black and red chickens. Pretty sure it's dominant.
