    what color in genetic code is a welsummer?
    I know, weird question but I found a chicken color calculator online and I want to plug in my breeds and see what I will get.
    it's located here for those inquiring minds

    I would go with e+/e+ and Mh/Mh
    It might not be Mahogany but the inheritance is the same.

    Sorry, you lose me when you start throwing out the vowels, LOL. I have a mental block when it comes to gene designations. [​IMG]

    The standard calls for a RED partridge.

    That genetic code also threw me off [​IMG]

    thank you, now I can just plug in the code and see what I get (although I realize, it may be wrong)

    Partridge is a very misleading hobby name that has no reflection on the genetic makeup of the bird.
    A Partridge Welsummer is a Red Duckwing e+/e+ s+/s+ Mh/Mh
    a Silver Duckwing Welsummer is e+/e+ S/S mh/mh
