    Hiya again.. I thought I had a silver laced polish roo to go with my hens but I have hens I am sure... posted a topic in gender of these just to confirm what I am thinking..

    I have a splash cockeral (well maybe splash)

    Here is a pic of him for confirmation of that!!!

    Clean on right side

    Splash on left and back

    As he is getting older more black patches are appearing..

    Anyway what I really want to know if I was to hatch eggs from him with

    Chamois
    Crele??
    Black
    Silver laced

    What colour chicks would I get??

    Illia has been great before, maybe you may also know this [​IMG]

    Thankyou anyone who can help... in advance [​IMG]

    Chamois - You'll get mostly white birds. Maybe a little bit of blue or brown leaking here and there, but mostly white.
    Crele?? - Since I saw your "creles" aren't a true Crele, the most I can say is, they'll be barred. And blue. There may be some gold leakage here and there on the neck.
    Black - 100% blue offspring
    Silver laced - Possibly sex-linked but unlikely, they'll all be blue with hints of leakage in the form of spangling (like on a Hamburg) or an almost partridgey look, but most will be blue with hints of either silver or brown.

    Maybe someone else can weigh in on her. . . She's hard to describe, honestly, and almost looks as if she's blue-based herself, seeing the back half of her body. She's very pretty - I'd say crossing her to splash will give the same results I mentioned though. [​IMG] The offspring will indeed have either silver or orangey brown on their necks. The males will look like your current male "Crele."

    Then half the offspring will be blue based like her, half will be splash.

    ETA - Here's a blue cuckoo Araucana for comparable note. Splash cuckoo will be much lighter, almost white w/faint blue barring. This will give you an idea on females.
