    depends if your hen is a rec red carrier or not and wether your cock bird carries dilute and also what's hidden under the rec red... makes breeding interesting.

    None of us can tell you. It all depends on what is underneath the recessive red. And whether or not the hen carries RR. You never know, they could both carry recessive white and give you solid white babies. Anything is possible.

    Mary has a good point.......but if not split to any other color.

    Blue checks, blue check splash, all split to red.
