# What are the outcomes?

I am getting a Lemon Cuckoo Orpington rooster and a Lavender Orpington. Has anyone bred these 2 breeds? What colors did you come out with? Any pictures? If not, what do you think the chicks would turn out to look like? Also won't the chicks be 2/3 orpington and 1/3 cuckoo maran?

Never heard of mixing the two... here is a calculator to help determine what colors you may get. I tried calculating it and it said the first generation would be black barred for males and females. The second generation if you bred a female to the father lemon cuckoo would be 25% dominant and 25% heterozygous black barred and 25% black patterned gold -necked/birchen barred dominant and 25% black patterned gold -necked/birchen barred heterozygous. You could play with it further to see the out comes and such.

yeah and they will show lots of buff cuckoo color on their black body...

just like below birds but with buff barring instead of buff

It's a genetic calculator I found. Hard to understand at first but it has been helpful. The colors may be different in the link for some reason instead of being the ones listed above.

I just can't understand it to save my life, but I understand what yall mean by split.. He could produce a cukoo or a orpington correct? Or is it just colors?
