    Quote:[​IMG] if he carries two genes for the pea comb then all the offspring would have pea combs, but if he only carries one gene then half would have single combs and half would have pea combs.

    No he is a Brown/Red as the wing triangle is black, it should be red to be a red duck-wing. [​IMG]

    They should have a peacomb and the chicks would be dark since you are crossing the roo to a black jersey giant hen and the offspring should be big in size when they grow up.

    The offspring would be black with either both pea and SC or just pea comb.
