    I do not know enough about genetics to use the calculator and am wondering what colors u breed together to get the candy corn coloring in polish chickens. And is this the same as crele??? Can you get candy corn from breeding candy corn to candy corn or do they only acurre from breeding two different colors together??? Please advice!!! Thanks, k

    Maybe if you pot a photo od what you consider candy corn colour...crele is not at all what I would consider candy corn colour, but I really am not quie sure what colour/pattern YOU mean

    are you talking about the tolbunt? I think they breed true, you'd buy hatching eggs from tolbunt parents.

    Tolbunt still doesn't seem to match the moniker. candy corn is yellow, orange and white...

    What would be the genetic outcome of a cross between two tolbunt cuckoo (candy corn) polish? Would all offspring be candy corn?
