    1 Depends on how the BBR cock is bred, but basically gold pullets (Wheaten,Partridge or Birchen) & split silver/gold cockerels.
    2 Anybodies guess, as you can not tell what the white is masking.
    3 There is no such thing as a BBR hen, she is either Wheaten or Partridge, silver pullets & split silver/gold cockerels.
