    Quote:I dont think there is a "Recessive Black" breed out there.... what you may be reffering to is, a Black bird based on e+ wildtype(wich is recessvie to Extended Black E) most melanizers that can make a recessive wild type e+ self black are Dominant..

    mating a Black bird to a Recessive white bird should yield all black birds if the Black bird is based on Extended black(E) or Extended Black Restricted(Er)... but if based on eb or e+ you may get different colors depending what Recessive whit is hiding..
