Mixing Italian with wild will result in 50% Italian and 50% wild (statisticly)
Italian is a gold/wild mix, so the gold allele hitting wild will result in again Italian and the wild allele hitting wild will be a wild one.

Silver with wild is more unpredicable, as just "Silver" doesn't explain which is mixed in, ... pure homozygous silver are lethal. So anything else is under the silver (silver is a dilution gene)
Do you have a pic of the silver roo?

Thank you! Here’s a pic of my silver roo, Hes approximately 5 weeks old. I had to seperate him from the rest since he was being a bit too aggressive towards the female.
