What might a Cream Brabanter/Australorp cross be like?

    I have a Cream Brabanter rooster and a Black Australorp hen that I'd like to cross. I'm not doing any sort of breeding project; I'd just like to see what the resulting chicks are like and keep a few pullets. Any ideas about the feather patterns or colors I might get for pullets? I have a decent understanding of genetics and all that, but chicken colors seem crazy when I see a blue/black/splash chart. Here's my rooster for reference.

    Terrorbird,
    Found your post from google search...I'm looking for a Cream Brabanter Rooster for my cream hens. I picked them up at auction by a fluke and now I'm looking for a Roo for my girls.
    Any ideas. I'm in the Raleigh, NC. area and wish to acquire a Gold or Cream Brabanter Rooster to continue to establish the breed. Efowl has discontinued selling that breed any longer. They have been listed as Rare in lineage, and forgive me if I'm wrong in that statement BYC folowers. But, I love the breed and would like to continue to strengthen the Brabanters.

    Thanks,
    reefcare
    NC.
