    I made this chart to be able to more easily see what outcomes are possible when mixing some colors. In this one I mapped out combinations of Blue, Black, Silver, Chocolate, Lavender and Lilac. The obvious ones I left out- like Black to Black etc. I thought maybe some people on here would find it useful, so i'm putting it out there for anyone who might. Feel free to utilize it in any way you'd like

    Very interesting! Could you explain a little bit why ChocM/BlueF has a different outcome than BlueM/ChocF?

    Thanks for sharing this, I can see it being very useful if I ever decide to bread for certain colors!

    Thanks. And some genes are sex-linked. The chocolate seems to be good for having sex linked ducklings fairly easily. I couldn't say why that is the way it is, but that's how it works out

    Do you know if these statistics work with chickens as well?

    I'm not sure. I've wondered that myself, given the colors are the same names in both
