    If the rose comb bird has two copies of the gene, all offspring will be rosecombed. If he has one, it will be a 50/50 split (on average).

    The rosecomb hen was fullblooded rosecomb and the mottled cochin roo was fullblooded rosecomb.


    The reason I'm asking is I hatched Mottled Cochin eggs and Mottled Cochin Rosecomb mixes. There are some chicks with rosecombs, obviously mixes, some yellow footed, white beaked middle toe feathered obvious mottled cochins, but some that are black with white that look like they are mottled, but not the normal mottled pattern, a lot of white with black that my birds make.
