    This is a what would I get Question?

    I have 2 extra Silver Lace English Oprington Roosters. I was looking to use them. What would I get if I put a Silver Lace Orpington rooster over Gold Lace Orpington hens? Or over Black hens? Or over Chocolate / Chocolate Cuckoo?

    Thank You!

    Do you really mean Orpington, or perhaps Wyandotte? You will get cute chicks. Enjoy!! If you mean Wyandotte, the rose comb of the Wyandotte will be dominant.

    English Orpington. I have Lavender, chocolate, chocolate cuckoo, black, mottled, silver lace and gold lace. I thought there was some percentage that would come out silver lace.
