    I am trying to figure out how to enter this rooster in the chicken genetics calculator.

    I attached a screenshot of as close as I've got so far. I'm trying to remove the red from the wings.

    I've also attached some pictures of the rooster in question. Breeding is unknown, going strictly off appearance at this point. There is some Silkie in there somewhere (comb, crest, a few foot feathers etc). He is black and gold. Wings are black with a bit of gold leakage at the top. No red whatsoever.

    I will reply to this post with another post showing his offspring so far.

    What do I need to edit in the calculator to remove the red from the wings?

    Thanks! Screen shot 2018-03-20 at 5.06.36 PM.png IMG_6607.jpg IMG_6623.jpg

    When crossed with a clean legged cuckoo/barred bantam hen, the pullets were black and the one cockerel was cuckoo/barred with leakage. Pullets were black, one with a full crest. Various amounts of foot feathers.

    When crossed with a Gold Laced Wyandotte hen, pullets were mostly black with a a little gold leakage in one. No cockerel from that hatch.

    I've tried a few times with your information, and I can't seem to find a way to take the red out of the wings without changing the base pattern.
    Sorry, can't help you I'm at a loss.
    If we knew all the breeds in him it might help.
