    I have two purbred Polish--a White Crested Black and a Buff Laced hen. What colors can I expect if I bred the two? I'm hoping for some Tolblunts.

    I just love those colors! [​IMG] I'm hoping that maybe between the black and the buff, I'll end up with some that have more red in them.

    That would be kewl! I have 4 crested myself. Golden, Buff, Silver Laced and Mottled Houdan. This would be intersting since I have two roo's (the buff and the silver laced) and two pullets (the golden and mottled houdan). Guess we'd have to wait and see....after all they are only 3 months old on the 30th of this month.

    Are you still a member on this forum? If so, did you do this cross?

    Just checking interresting older threads?

    I think in order to get Tolblunts you would have to add the mottling gene some where in there.

    you'll most likely get a mostly black chicken...or a mostly white chicken I suppose. I haven't crossed buff lace to wc black but gold lace to wc black yields mostly black birds, as does silver lace to black. you won't be getting tollbunts, that's for sure.
     
  10. You should get all white birds.
    Did you ever do the cross?
