What happens in the following color breedings:
Silver x Black
Silver x Splash
What are the actual Breeds ?
Black and Splash are either Silver or Gold based ( or maybe both in roos)
But Usually Silver to Black will give mostly solid black probably with some leakage and Silver X Splash will probably give mostly solid blue chicks with possible leakage again.
It may help if you would tell us the actual breed that is silver.
They are Ameraucanas.
Quote:OK Well then leakage will be more probable and the color of the leakage will depend on if the Blacks are Silver or Gold based.
Thanks for the info. I'm trying to figure which cockerals to keep and what I should go ahead and get rid of.
2 Splash pullets
1 Black pullet
1 Silver pullet
2 Splash cockerals
1 Silver cockeral
I know for sure I'm keeping the Silver and looking for more Silver pullets, I'll probably keep only one Splash and pen him with the Splash and Black pullets.
