    What colors should we expect with a black rooster mating with each of our females?!?!?!?!

    black & buff = ?
    black & white = ?
    black & black = ?(assuming black here LOL)
    black & partridge = ?

    Thank you in advance!

    Probably all blacks with some unicolor. Here is a link, http://www.edelras.nl/Henk69/Overzicht.htm , just choose the colors then click on TO CHICKEN CALCULATOR on the right, then on the new page it opens go to the bottom left and click on CALCULATE CROSSING. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    Above the picture of the chicken om each there a 4 different language options. One is english, then when youselect both colors there is an icon on the right that says TO CHICKEN CALCULATOR click on that then it pulls up a whole bunch of gene options. Just ignore those and scroll down to near the bottom and on the left there is another icon you click called CALCULATE CROSSING then it shows pics and names of what ou will get. Does that help?
