    Hi All... Just a general enquiry.

    I have a Gold Laced Wyandotte cross rooster. He is mating with...

    A pure white silkie and a warren hybrid. What will I get if I hatch the chicks, does anyone know or have a best guess as to what the recessive genes are and dominant ones are?

    Thank you,

    Kelly.

    With those crosses, it's anybody's guess.
    Mated to the silkie most likely a lot of white with some black spots. Most likely no silkied babies.
    I don't know what a Warren Hybrid looks like. So .......................................

    not quite... as most white silkies are recessive white not dominant white... the chicks will hatch out like your everyday partridge chicks(eb brown chick down) then thanks to Melanotic and Pg they will be a highly melanized birds, almost black but not quite
