If I put a black or splash orp roo over white orp hens? Does anyone know what color I would get?
Quote:Count me in on wanting to know also...
Some one has to know the possible colors and % of when adding
White (in any combo)
Buff (in any combo)
I want to know too!
Make that 4 that want to know
I think it would depend a lot on whether it was dominant or recessive white.
If you do Black over recessive White you should get Black and over Dominant White you should get White... but, with recessive genes at play, I do not know... nor could I tell you what the Splash roo will get ya
I suffer from a big dose of logic... so to me "Dominant" means, something that would over rule and "recessive" would mean to be that could not rule
over I know that is wrong but it sooooo hard to make my mind understand.
Black x White (to me) would be some black, some white, some black and
white and some white and black
The whole thing is like Algebra..How in the world can I add\\subtract letter!!
I guess my left side needs to ligthin up!
I wish I could answer those questions I'm still learning about this whole genetics thing. I have a Mille Fleur and a Self-Blue d'Uccle...and if I breed them... I will get all black babies! LMAO So.... yeah, it just doesn't work like common sense would dictate. It's all based on who has enough of what to form a "whatever"
If you are wondering if you will get a spotted chick the answer is no. You will get some blacks and some whites and depending on if there is a recessive white hiding somewhere you won't know for a couple generations what might pop out.
I think dominant white will hide black (making it recessive). Recessive white will be hidden by the black. There is also the recessive white that can hidden by dominant white.
Some black chicks and some white chicks that can in future generations through the opposite color in a chick.
As for the splash roo you will get something with the diluted black gene that makes the splash and blue but most likely you'll get white chicks with a dominant white that hides the blue gene.
It almost isn't worth your time to mix up the black and whites. You don't really get anything but blacks and whites with an opoosite colored chicks showing up down the line if you breed back.
You will get a line of chickens that no longer retain the purity of the original parents.
You do have Deisel and some Speckled Sussex to play with. Focus, Jared! Focus.

So is Black the absent of color or is White the absent of color?
