    I’ve been looking into the breeding of different breeds and am trying to locate the genomes of several breeds: Coronation Sussex, Red Dorking, Black Tailed Buff Marans, Black Cooper Marans, and the Scots Dumpy. I’ve looked at the calculator, but I don’t understand what sequences to input. These breeds are my flock and I’m keeping pure lines; however, if I cross any for a side project, I’d like some level of knowledge beforehand.

    The Kippenjungle calculator shows a lot more options. Any help on how to use the calculator?

    There are more but you can leave them the way they are.
    I was only stating the genes you need to change.

    i Thought the dilution in a coronation Sussex was lavender? Right? No? I’ve never owned them but from appearance I always thought it was lavender.

    Also OP, you might be using a bad/outdated calculator. Newer one is easier to use I believe.

    This is the best and newest one:

    I, too, think it is lavender.

    My understanding is that Coronation Sussex are essentially Light Sussex (Columbian patterned) with a Lavender gene which alters the color of the black feathers in the hackle and tail feathers.

    Exactly, but not sure if it’s wheaten or partridge based.
