    I had bought some marans from dave fitz, (fitz farms) and we now have a skunk problem. He got my blue copper marans rooster the other day and i have to get on a waiting list for another roo. If i put my cuckoo marans rooster in with my blue and black hens, what will my chicks turn out to be? Would it be best to put my standard cuckoo with them or my golden cuckoo rooster in there? Thank yoi in advance!

    I agree, I wouldn't know how the genes would express themselves.

    Hello, and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I would post at the link Kelsie2290 left you with. I'm not sure what the results would be of mixing those two color patterns.
