So, I'm getting atleast a trio of cochins. The roo is mottled, the one hen is black and the other is barred. Without knowing their genetic backgrounds, is there any possibility of me getting more mottleds? I'm sure black is dominant so im sure i'll get more pure blacks with the black hen....but hoping to produce mottled chicks. Is mottled recessive? Is barred recessive? Thanks! Edited to add: I may be getting a Blue silkie pair, If I read right at one time, am i right that I can get splashes from this breeding?
