could you guys tell me what colors of chickens do I mix to get a red chicken?
Do you have an example of what your looking for?
well I would mix black ameraucana and buff ameraucana would that work?
Nope, it won't work. You can't mix breed colors like paint. You'd probably get black birds with red/gold/buff in their hackles and saddle areas.
Go buy a Rhode Island Red and have a nice day.
I think you have to start out with red, a wild type (black breasted red), or wheaten base.
Edited to add: and also Gold
