First, a bit of history. I bought eggs from ebay last fall, black/blue mottled, porcelain, and mille fluer d'uccles. I hatched 3 black mottleds, 2 porcelain, and 1 mille fleur. Black mottleds=2 cockerel, 1 pullet; porcelains=2 pullets; mille fleur=1 cockerel. Over the winter I ended up losing one mottled cockerel and one porcelain pullet. A few months ago, someone was nice enough to 'take' some extra roos off my hands, without my permission of course One of them was the black mottled cockerel. The black mottled pullet has recently started laying. She is with the mille fleur cockerel and a porcelain cockerel (bought him for the porcelain pullet, who was also taken ). I was wondering if black mottled crossed to mille fleur or porcelain would result in any 'pure' color, or if they would just be mixed. I do have other mille fleurs I can put that roo with, but I have no other porcelains. So if I can't use him, he will be finding a new home So which roo (if either) should I keep with the mottled?
