    What would be the most likely outcome of

    A Citrus/Lemon sablepoot Cock and a Bantam Silver laced Wyandotte

    The reason im asking is purely for info and not to actually breed them, I have my lonely wyandotte in with a sablepoot cock and hen and have a sneaky feeling he is treading them both, Im trying to breed the sablepoots so im removing the SLW eggs so not to get any mixed in.

    However if i could get more info maybe i would consider leaving some eggs in or maybe even incubating a few ,

    That would be pretty awesome, send me the eggs if my hen goes broody? [​IMG] I'm quite close to you, do you know Burton-Upon-Trent? I live about 3 miles 'way from there.

    The coloration will be sex-linked. Males will be very light partially laced, females may be partially laced or just weird looking, kinda like a partridge color. They will be gold, possibly with the lemon/citron influence.

    By not crossing the original Sablepoot to a Wyandotte. [​IMG]


    But to get the color, one way is to cross it back to the original Sablepoot parent, but remember - Wyandottes and not the same kind of spangling/lacing that the Sablepoot are, so you may get some weird colors in the mix.

    You won't get partridge as in the true Partridge color though, you'll likely get a weird partially or double laced color.
