Ok, so what I understand about the gold and silver genes is pretty limited, and I need some info on how to create the color cream (as in cream spangled). I know that a hen can have one gene (or is it copy?) for gold/silver. They are either just silver or just gold. But the rooster has two genes that can be either silver, gold, or one of each. hen = s+/- is gold S-/- is silver roo = s+/s+ is gold S/S is silver S/s+ is cream I have a cream spangled EE roo (sl Seabright hen X partrige EE roo) that I am breeding to two silver laced Wyandotte hens. I know that when I breed them I will get silver, gold, and black hens; and the cockrels will be silver, cream, and black. (of course, breeding EE's always gives you suprises) How do I get cream hens? I thoght about adding some Cream Brabanters, but I only want to buy hens, and they are pretty rare (despite the fact that you can get them from some major hatcheries). Why waste rare breed hens on a EE project!
