The breeder I am getting my melanistics from said that something got the female so she just has the male. I was wondering if I could breed him to a normal ringneck hen or if it has to be a melanistic hen. I have heard different answers from friends, some say I should get 50/50 and others say all of one color.
 
You can put up to 8 ringneck hens with him. Should get both .

I put a buff ringneck with both normal ringnecks,and melanistics. Got very few normal color chicks,and with 8 hens got a 85% hatch.
