    Hello!

    I have a few polish growing up, including a SL rooster, and both SL and GL hens. What colors would come from a SL roo over a GL hen? Is the same true for other breeds such as Wyandottes?

    Thanks for the help!

    Have you ever tried the chicken genetic calculator? Out of curiosity I tried finding out and it said that you would get half and half. Males with black patterned yellow/silver double laced and females with black patterned yellow/ golden laced.

    A SL rooster over a GL hen will get silver females and mixed males. The males will look silver but have gold leakage. Works the same with Wyandottes
