    A lot would be similar to that polish pullet, with more or less gold color. Flecks could be blue/grayish or black.

    I say a fun cross- lots of color possibilites in the F2 etc

    What do you get with a pure white NN male with a NN red female?

    A buff?

    white hides other colors so it would be difficult to predict. Below is the best place for chicken genetics

    http://kippenjungle.nl/basisEN.htm It takes forever to learn all this stuff but it is a good place to start the adventure.

    right- white is not a color, it is really a 'stop' to putting any color in the feather... so a white chicken can be any color or pattern under that white. plus there are two different kinds of white, one dominant, one recessive... they give totally different results too.

    dominant white- mostly white chicks, some will eventually show some buff/red as they grow. Some *might* turn out white tailed reds similar to Brian the roo posted a couple pages ago.

    recessive white, probably black chicks(recessive white on a black chicken can give a crisper, cleaner white so a lot of these are genetically black), eventually showing some red or white as they grow.

    if you got your white from show breeder and it has very clear yellow legs, chances are it has cuckoo. The barring/cuckoo helps with clearing the legs to a clean yellow or white. if the roo is a white with cuckoo, then all chicks will be cuckoo, also some will start to show red or white areas as they grow.

    but bottom line is you won't really know until the chicks are hatched and then you can make guesses what genes the white rooster has under the white.

    Good thing I have two black females to use :D
    My girls started to lay around 23 weeks. One is still not laying, and they are 27 weeks old. You guys wanted pictures of the new chicks, here they are. I have 4, and they are all barred and have naked necks. :) Brian was not the daddy :p [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] This one has dried goo. Need to use a warm wash cloth tonight to clean it up. I did a bit, but it's still like that. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Ooooo that heat lamp feels nice.

    Here's a few of my naked necks..

    This guy is only like 3.5 months old and big for his age, he always escapes the cage that's why.

    When I done that color crossing ( course mine was with a EE) the Buff Laced caused the offspring to be a paint (white with black splotches).

    Now when I crossed the Buff Laced to a Silver EE I got Buff Laced (my 1/2 Pol-1/2 EE roo).

    He is actually a red crested red polishXbuff laced polish cross.Will that mean I could see some color from crossing that pair?
