    I dont know if its right place to post this.
    So i have one black hen and a buff(i dont know if its a buff but it looks orange) they breed, had fertile eggs,the hen git broody and is now incubating her own eggs. My question is what posibly be the colour of chicks..i know its all a gess game..but i read somewhere thatblack colour is dominant so does that says that most of her chicks will me black or any other colours with black colour in dominance...??

    He looks black patterned gold columbian to me--which is basically duckwing with columbian markings. Not buff. Pretty bird, though.

    I think your chicks will be black, mind you.

    Also, I think so.
    The rooster carries the gene E ^ b / E ^ b while the hen carries the gene E / E
    The children will be all E / E ^ b and will show the dominant color black.
