    I think you will get chicks that look like Black Tail Whites, but they will have lots of black flecks and feather on their white bodies. They will look like poor quality mottled birds - but they might look pretty.

    You reminded me of a surprise I got when I got a pure black rooster with very dark flame red feathers on his neck. I have no idea how he was that colour as I don't have any black birds - all mine a white or Wheaten, buff.
