I’m thinking to keep a chocolate Orpington roo for my flock but some of my hens are lavender cuckoo Orpingtons. What could I expect from this color combination for their chicks? Thanks
Wow thanks. I appreciate the details.Double sex links.
Pullet chicks will be chocolate without barring.
Cockerel chicks will be black with barring.
All chicks will carry one copy of the lavender gene.
All will also carry one copy of the chocolate gene.
Chocolate is sex linked so with one copy the pullets will show it but the cockerels won't.
