If I breed my blue cochin hen with my white cochin roo what will they produce??? Thanks, Keri
We need a sticky!
There is no way to know what breeding white to non-white will give you. It could be ANYTHING (except perhaps a purple haired monster that rightfully belongs on Sesame Street)
STINK! If anyone has any wild guesses let me know! Thanks,Keri
Yup yup. If the chicken version of recessive white is the same as the pigeon version, then the birds are genetically any other color, but the presence of the white gene, bleaches all the color out of its appearance. So anything could be hiding underneath
Ok..you guys are not helping my cause here! So even if my roo has been a product of all white bloodlines for years...still anything is possible? I was thinking just variations of blue, splash, or white? But I know NOTHING! Sooo...you would just breed white to white and never white with blue? Thanks, Keri
Breeding white to other colors is fun just to see what happens. It's interesting to see what they've been carrying all this time.
Chances are that you get rusty animals, bad blacks and blues. The pullets would be less rusty than the males.
