    I honestly didn't understand any of that. Are you saying you want to make Mottled Buff Cochins?

    Well, what are you envisioning as an appearance from your mottled and buff cross?

    Okay, that is barring, not mottling. Are you wanting a bird where the black stripes are replaced by buff stripes?

    the calculator shows barred males and black females is what you'll get in the first cross.

    Males would be barred; females would not. I'm not sure the females would all be black--it really depends on the specific genetic makeup of the buff.
