    I was just wondering if anyone had a pic of the offspring from a BR hen and a silver Phoenix roo? I *think* I understand the genetics calculator on this, but I'd love to see pics.

    Thanks!

    Yup, sure do. All males were barred (looked like ghosty barred BR pullets till combs turned red) and female was solid black. I posted pics on here recently.

    These siblings are just over 3 weeks old in the pictures. The barred ones are cockerels sired by a Silver Phoenix rooster over BR hen. Males get barring from the mom.

    To complete the picture for you, here is their sister, the only female SP x BR out of that hatch:

    Here she is as an older pullet:

    Cool! Thanks!

    Do the roos keep the Phoenix's beautiful long saddle hackles and long tail feathers?

    You know, I never saw how the males turned out because I rehomed them not long after those pics were taken.
