what would i get? anyone have any pictures of this? thank you in advance
there is a reason no one is replying--try searching on "recessive white"
i couldnt find anything that helps me. i really dont know how to use the search lol.
White is basically a wild card. It can "cover" other colors. You will not know what colors your white bird is covering until you breed them.
thank you so much that helped a lot.
i made a punnet square to get this info. there are 2 genes in a chromosone,( dominate and recessive) dominate covers recessive. u need 2 recessive genes to get recessive coloring and only one dominate gene to show dominate colors. black is dominate and white is recessive. i hope this helps, below is the percentages of possiable outcomes. someone else can help on feathering,feet, ect... but this is color.
recessive (white) is showed as lower case and dominate (black) is showed as upper case. this should help:
hen( r , r ) + roo ( B , r ) =chick#1( B , r ) /chick#2( B , r ) /chick#3( r , r ) /chick#4( r , r )=if cochin carries a white and black gene, 50% of the chicks are pure white and another 50% are a balck and carry white
hen( r , r ) + roo ( B , B ) =chick#1( B , r ) /chick#2( B , r ) /chick#3( B , r ) /chick#4(B , r ) = so if the cochin carries both black genes, 100% of the chicks will be black and carry white.
so i would more than likely get all black chicks?
if she is a pure cochin (both black genes) all the chicks will be black.
shes mixed with a silkie, she had white tips on her feathers when she was younger but after her first molt she lost those
what color silkie? if white silkie go with 50% white and 50% black.
