Im a person that likes hatching a variety of chicks not just one certain breed

I have a 1/2 French Cuckoo Maran and the other half is French Black Maran Rooster But he has cuckoo feather except his one black shiny curly feather on his tail.

I wanting to breed him with a French Wheaten Maran

But does anyone know what the results would be since the gentics will be

12.5% - Cuckoo Maran
12.5% - Black Maran
50% - Wheaten Maran

That's only 75% of a chicken.

EDT: Your rooster has the dominant genetics. He's got two copies of extended black, one from each side. That'll cover the wheaten coloration, so his chicks'll be black.
He also has a single copy of the barring gene. Since he's got both barred and non-barred genes, he'll pass one or the other to his offspring. Half'll be barred, and half won't.

So you'll have messy barred and black chickens, and from my experience with a similar cross, I'm predicting that the females will have red chests or necks, and the males will probably have red leakage in the shoulders.
