    does anyone have a black pekin X white pekin.
    I am wanting to mix the 2 colours to see what would come out.
    If you have one post a picture please.[​IMG]

    If dominant white, you will get a white bird; if recessive white, you will get the same as if you bred your black to an unknown bird.

    you will get the same as if you bred your black to an unknown bird.

    The point Sonoran Silkies is making is that one cannot reasonably predict what colour a cross to a recessive white bird will give because one wouldn't know what other genes the bird has.

    I've heard of New South Wales but where is New South Whales?[​IMG]
