  3. Is there a calculator (in English) that shows what you get when you cross the F1 chicks? The calculators seem to only go as far as phenotype and genotype of the first cross, but they don't carry it into the next generation.

    Henk, what color do I select for black breasted red? I don't see that on the list.

    Henk:
    Just want to say thanks. Your calculators are great. I do spend way too much time playing with them. I can't imagine anything more useful or simple to use.

    The calculators start up with black breasted red or genetically: black patterned gold (groundcolored) duckwing
    Black is the patterncolor
    Gold is the groundcolor
    Duckwing is the "pattern"

    All like the red jungle fowl.

    Oh, I didn't realize. Thanks. Trying to figure out what I'll get from Buff brahmas (buff columbian) with a BB-Red--ish rooster [​IMG] Of course, I could just wait a few days til the chicks hatch, but where's the fun in that? [​IMG]
