    Well, I just realized yesterday, that the roo I bought to go with my BB Red hens, is not a BB red, but a wheaten roo. So my question is, what color(s) will you get if you have that combination?

    Quote:Not always true. e+ is dominant to wheaten but the wheaten will suppress the salmon breast.
    The red shifts to the edges of the breast and to the shoulders/wings.
