    greetings,
    i have a large ameraucana roo in the lavender color and i want him to breed with my partridge silkie hen
    but i want the chimpmunk stripes to show on the chicks, will this be a result?

    and as a quickie what is the result with breeding the same roo with a Buff silkie hen?

    much thanks.

    Both will result with mostly black offspring, maybe a little gold patterning esp. with the Buff x Lav. The chicks will probably all be brown.

    Quote:So when you say gold patterning does this mean the chimpmunk stripes will be of a goldish color?

    I don't think you'll get chipmunk stripes, honestly. I think you'll get chicks that are just simply brown or black w/brown undersides.

    The adults will be black w/gold markings.
