    Hello! I read that if you cross a BBRed to a Silver Duckwing, Golden Duckwing chicks result. I have all the fixins to make this cross, but I'm curious what the ratio of BBRed to SDW to GDW will be.

    [​IMG] Just wanted to say welcome. Dont know the answer to your question. But sounds like you could try it and see what you get.

    Mating a Black Red cock to a Silver Duckwing will give gold based pullets (Partridge or Wheaten depenant on how the cock is bred) &
    split silver/gold cockerels. These cockerels will look like Golden Duckwing, but they will not breed true, and are not genetically Golden Duckwing.

    Quote:I was afraid of that. Fortunately I've found a true Golden Duckwing so I can breed him instead of the BBRed.
