    If I put a blue English orp over a light brahma?

    And if I put a silver penciled rock over speckled sussex?

    I would over pictures. I know the rock has patterned genes and the sussex has the speckling... The orp can that yeild black chicks depending on who he is crossed with? I really don't want that...

    What about the rock over the brahma?

    I'm not sure what they would look like, but I'm sure they would be beautiful! Have you ever tried using the chicken calculator? That could help you figure it out.

    I have tried using chicken calculators, sadly I am no master hehe, but it looks to me like I will get a bunch of white birds with black markings, golden birds with black markings and blue birds. ?

    I can't use chicken calculators either. I'm terrible at math, and somehow "calculator" and me just don't mix. I would think Light Brahma would likely be a dominant coloration simply because I have had more then my share of white and white and black chickens from my own mixes.
