    Hello everyone! I was scrolling around through here and found something called a chicken calculator. I googled it and found this http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html

    Can anyone help figure out how to use this because it looks really complicated.

    What everything means. All I wanted to do was see what the cross breeds would like but it's all extremely confusing

    You first have to know what pattern and base color genes you are dealing with, not an easy thing when it comes to mixed breed birds.

    If you post pics of your birds, I may be able to help.

    You should start reading here. Going over each gene would take too long for me to post.
