    I was messing with my pens and my mottled room got my choc splash pullet , and I hatched a chick and it was chocolate [​IMG] and it is so cute [​IMG] . Is anyone else breeding them ? How long do you think it will take to breed the tails out of them ? And do you think I can get a chocolate mottled out of the chicks if I breed them together ? I would love to have a chocolate mottled [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So its a Cochin X OEGB cross ? And be careful calling them Chocolates, OEGBs are not true Chocolates, they are Dun, so if you started a project, they would be Dun Cochins.

    That's true about the dun. It is not a self chocolate gene. I think if I have this right. The difference is that self chocolates bred together produce all chocolate and the duns bred together produce chocolate (dun) , kahki and black. I am working on the third generation of chocolate/dun cochins. It's going to take a while to get them good.

    Quote:Yes that is correct, True Chocolate as in Seramas, Orps, and some other breeds, is a sexlinked recessive gene that will breed true. Dun as in the OEGBs and others does not breed true and also produces blacks and Khakis ( it works like Blue)

    yep
    Khakis x black = dun
    dun x dun=50% dun , 25% black , 25% Khakis
