    My first year with what I believe are polish bantams. I just put a few eggs in the incubator, but I'm wondering what color chicks I will get. My rooster has some red leaking threw so that makes me extremely curious. I'm terrible with color genes and any help would be greatly appreciated. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Even if he is leaking some gold on the shoulders(could be because he is heterozygous black or just missing some melanizers) most of the chicks will hatch black with white underbelly, the chicks will show variation of gold leakage as they grow up.

    So if I cross him with the two red, will I get the same colors? Or will they be laced?
