    I would probably have to guess that it will look similar to the father, but I am not as knowledgeable as most people on here.

    it looks alot like this chick- black andalusain
    cant be the father tho cuz i sold it when it was young before it was able to breed

    It's just going to be black with varying gold leakage. I have a LOT of birds like that. Happens whenever you cross E/E (extended black; - found in blues, cuckoos, splashes, duns, chocolates, lavenders) with partridge, duckwing, or wheaten based colors.
