    I don't know what either sets of their parents look like, but I was wondering what chicks these two produced would look like?

    Luna - creme

    Lupin - mahogany, red and white with lacing

    The female is most likely recessive white and I do not know what genes she has under the white. With out knowing her genetic make up it would be impossible to make a prediction. Anything I would say would be a guess.

    Quote:If it helps, she has a small patch (I'm talking 2 feathers) that are bleeding the same shade dark red on Lupin. It probably doesn't... I'll just have to see come spring. LOL

    Lupin is trying hard to be a red laced white. He's gorgeous! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you, I LOVE his coloring. I'm hoping maybe using the creme hen will give me some similar colored babies. Maybe red laced creme.

    You're cream one looks like it may be a dun, but I can't really tell from the photo. I have one myself. Is she white with gold highlights?

    I don't know. She's actually the color of really nice vanilla ice cream. Not white, more like off white, heavy cream color.
