So I didnt think about this until now! We have a BO pair. (m/f) and I want to get a white and tan silkies hen and an easter egger hen. Mainly we just want eggs. BUT if my BO mates with either the silkies or the egger which he will unless I keep them seperate, what will the babies be? Is there a standard in thr chicken world that they take the mama or the papas genes or do they just come out a mix? Thats if we decided to let any of the silkie or eggers hatch. Thanks!
