i would like to know what sort of colors i should expect from my mixed flock if i decide to hatch eggs, but have not found information online that i can follow (especially since i usually try to research late at night with a very tired brain...). i have a very handsome (at least i think so!) silver ameraucana rooster enthusiastically covering a black rumpless ameraucana (she came from a tailed ameraucana in a breeding program. the owner thought it was a deformity) and a buff orpington. later this year i'll have 3 salmon faverolles, too. i would love to hatch some from the orpington because she has been docile enough to handle, smart enough to free range safely, and hardy enough to rebound from a severe prolapse and continue laying. but since it is only a hobby flock, i do care what they'll look like. the black rumpless is a total nut. i can't get within 20 feet of her, but seeing as how she's the same breed as the rooster, i thought it would make sense to hatch hers. and again, only if silver+black will be pretty. if anyone understands genetics well enough to answer i very much appreciate, and if anyone has photos of those exact mixes i'd appreciate it even more!
