Ok, I sold some Bantam Cochins and the lady I sold them to was told not to breed them together because they are both blues. Is there a reason why not to breed them? And here are a few more colors and I'm wondering what I could possibly get if I cross them. Black Blue Blue Splash White Partridge Black Mottled Blue Mottled So far, it looks like if I cross the Splash with Mottled or Black, I get Blues and Blacks. I haven't bred my Blues yet since they are only 10 weeks old, but what would I get if I did cross them with any of the above colors, or with other Blues? What I currently have together is: 1 Blue Splash roo 4 Blue Splash hens 1 Barred roo 1 Barred hen 1 White roo 1 White Frizzled hen 1 Black Frizzled hen 1 Partridge cockerel (16 weeks old) 1 Black Mottled roo 1 Black Mottled hen Blue pullets and cockerels 1 pair of 10 wk old Blue Mottled Black cockerels I will probably sell off all the Black cockerels, and all of the Blues except maybe a pullet. But what would I get if I combined any of the above colors? I was told that if I cross my Partridge roo with any of the dark hens all I will get are Blacks. Could anyone give me more info on this? Thank you. I tried that genetics calculator and I know it's not accurate enough. It said all my Cuckoo Marans mixed chicks should have hatched out cuckoo, but so far, not a single one has. Probably because my roo is a Silver Cuckoo, and the calculator doesn't make adjustments for latent genes like that. So I figured I would ask the experts, lol. Any info on this would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!
