    Hi I have put some chickens on a few forums but haven't had much feedback. I got 4 chickens. 1 rooster (pekin) 3 hens silkie, silkie cross and a hamburg. They are pets so I don't have enough to go far to make show birds but trying to understand genetics and what's in the rooster if I wanted more pekins of certain colours. Can someone work out what's in the rooster from the chickens that hatched

    Rooster white with some sort of yellow on hackles? And bits of yellow on feet and some spots on body but not much

    Chick 2 from silkie. It's quite a light yellow with a white bum with the odd black feather in its tail
