I have over 17 different chickens. I'm trying to not have black chicks and preferably not blue.There's colors and combos that can overcome black, it all depends on what exactly you're trying to do! Are you trying to get away from ANY black? Like blue based birds, chocolate, etc? Or just from the classic 'black cooper' maran? Do you have any non-marans ladies currently you could use or are you planning on a feedstore trip come spring? : D

Thank you!almost nothing is going to provide you with anything other than black when grown... a dominant white hen such as a white leghorn would... a barred or cuckoo whole give you barred males but black hens
But If you’re talking just chicks, there could be something that might give you a patterned chick.... I’m not up on chick down color inheritance
