    I have a lovely red/black rooster, his 2 ladies are 1 buff and 1 brown/red hen.
    What colours am I likely to hatch?

    I guess i am asking will these colors blend into a mixed color and will i just get some of each color?

    If you mix varieties, you will hatch mixed varieties.

    I would assume you'd get a lot of dark chicks as brown red and "red/black" are dark.. and maybe a few darker buff looking ones.
