    I've tried the chicken calculator, but since I don't know enough about genes to know exactly which genes are at play in these breeds, I can only guess.

    Does anyone know what the combination in the subject line would give me? I'm just curious to think on what sort of chicks I might get from my chickens.

    Thanks!

    Weird to think of getting white chickens out of black and brown ones [​IMG]

    It depends upon the e-allele of the mottled Javas. I'd have expected black offspring from the mottled Java.

    Welsumer: e+/e+, Mh/Mh
    Silver Laced Wyandotte: eb/eb, S/-, Co/Co, Ml-Pg/Ml-Pg
    Mottled Java: E/E, mo/mo
