    that would be a pretty cross! i believe (but i'm not sure) that the offspring would all have single combs as it is the rooster's genes that determine the offsprings' combs, and the hen that determines the wattles. what varieties of japenese and hamburg? please post pics if you decide to try the cross, i luv to see them [​IMG]

    The crossling would be rosecombed. Shank color not yellow. Earlobes a mix between white and red.
    As far as the leg length is concerned:
    The creeper gene is linked to the rosecomb gene.
    That means that you will never be able to breed a short legged single comb from the crosslings again. [​IMG]

    OH! I was just pondering this! I would LOVE to accomplish spangled japs.... but I keep telling myself that there are to many variables. I have black japs, and I was thinking about crossing them w/ the hamburg roo. even if I could accomplish the strait comb, and the color coming through, I am not sure if I could get the legs short. Also, I know nothing about color genetics so not even sure black would be the right choice....it's just what we have [​IMG] ....but my curiosity is peaked every time I look at my little banty hamburg [​IMG]
