genetics question

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by Chickenrandomness, May 11, 2011.

  1. i want to know a rough estimate on what these birds will look like

    i have 2 EE cross eggs in the incubator right now

    i have 2 roosters that may have fertilized them, but i'm not sure.
    the roosters are:
    Black Sumatra
    Unkown breed (picture below)

    the EE is basically wheaten with a little lavander.

    heres the EE: [​IMG]

    and heres the unknown rooster: [​IMG]

    does anyone have a rough idea what the chicks will look like?

    With EE's you can never really tell. A good guess would be though if by yhr Sumatra they will most likely be black with maybe a little leakage of another color. Good luck.
