    Question is this; What color do you end up with if you breed a Silver Laced Wyandotte Roo with Golden Laced Wyandotte Hens and what color with breeding Light Brahma's hens with a Buff Brahma Roo.
    Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated.

    Simplified answer - pullets will be the color of their father, cockerels will be somewhere between, a blend of the two colors involved.

    well only the brahmas will be sex-linked because the dad is gold and the mom is silver but you can notdo that the opposite way it wont work so if you have a siler roo and gold hens you woulndt be able to tell the sex of them a birth.


    btw hope this hepled a little
    Oh and dont no about the wyandotte mix coloration but the brahmas only will be pullets gold at birth and roos white with some leakage.

    Quote:Silver male X gold female = silver laced females and silver laced males with straw color in the hackles

    Light brahma X buff brahma = a sex linked cross;

    males will be light brahma but with some straw color in the hackles and females will be buff brahma- the chicks may be difficult to sex at hatch using the gold and silver on the face and head. Brahma are brown and columbian which creates the black back phenotype.
