    If i only get a silver roo or a golden roo....could i use only one color to breed with the other color? IE: gold roo bred to a silver hen...would that produce both colors or some funky colors?

    Silver & gold are sex linked alleles. Mating a male of one colour over females of the opposite colour will get you pullets that are pure for the father's colour, and mixed silver/gold split cockerels.
