    I have six marans. I have a blue wheaten cockeral and a splash wheaten cockeral. 2 blue wheatn hens and 2 wheaten. I may have to cull the blue wheaten cockeral.

    What will i get if i breed the splash rooster over all 4 of the hens?
    That will be splash wheaten rooster x wheaten and splash wheaten x blue wheaten.

    Looked for chart for 20 minutes, couldnt find it.

    If i put that splash wheaten rooster over blue wheaten americauna hens wjat color offspring?

    Wheaten, blue wheaten and splash wheaten follow the same rules as breeding black, blue and splash...


    Simply replace the spots marked black with wheaten and this will give you your answers... :)
