What would I get if I bred my chocolate wyandotte roo( choc gene) with my buff orpington hen.
Any genetics people out there?
I would really appreciate if someone could help me. My chocolate hen is not working out
Ahhhhjjjjjjjhhhhclick on this genetic people!!!!
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)
