I seem to be having a mountain of questions these days. I have golden laced wyandotte pullets and cockerals and one silver laced wyandotte. Love both colours. Some questions follow: 1) What colour would the offspring of golden laced rooster with silver laced hen be, is it a recognized colour amongst the wyandotte breed? 2) What would a black jersey giant rooster with australorpe hen be, I only had one jersey giant cockeral hatch and one astralorpe pullet hatch in the incubator. Probably a good meat bird, good laying hens, right? 3) My light brahma rooster mated with a Rhode island red. The resulting chicks are all cockerals and are very brahma like, feathered legs, white with grey and gold flecked feathers, single comb. Why the brahma look alike? Thought the genes criss crossed, I am wondering why the chicks are not brown like the RIR? Getting more and more confused about genetics here. I have ordered that book that I keep hearing is a great one, can't recall the name, but it is on order now. Going to study throughout the winter while all my honeybees take their break too, smiling. Have a wonderful day, health.
