    Chocolate (either Sex linked recessive or dun) does not dilute gold enough to make buff paler. What you are probably going to get is a cross as if you were crossing Buff with black. So you will probably get Blacks with gold markings. It could fool me and come through as brownish but I think they will only be carriers of the gene in the first generation. Sex linked recessive chocolate has a better chance of shoeing through, but only on the females. Dun would have nothing to dilute until black was added to the mix.

    Quote:Sorry been bussy.... so here we go... Chocolate Wyandotte are basically a Black bird with the recessive choc gene.. Buff Orps are wheaten based Columbian(by Co and Db) restricted birds... so here is the resutl of such a cross.. males that will look mostly black but that will show some restriction on the tail and body but not as drastic as a black tailed red bird... females will be chocolate colored with some degree of restriction of the black(will show some gold color on body)
