    Well I have a blue game cockrel. A golden game cockrel. A orange/red game cockrel. Other cockrels also they don't get wives though lol. So I would like to have my best chance at continuing these colors. Well what chance do I have then? What color hens can I put with them to continue these colors? I heard a black and white make a blue. a red and buff make an orange. But a golden and what to make more goldens? Am I making sense? I have confused myself already lol. Anyway I have all sorts of colors for pullets oranges, reds, buffs, a white one, splashes of various shades. Really would like some feedback from one who does this a lot as to who goes with who.

    In gamefowl there is no color known as, "Golden" unless you are referring to Golden Duck-wing there is also no color known as, "Orange/Red".

    This is a Poultry Forum, not a Grammar or School Forum. I can really care less about grammar.

    You can cross your blue (if it is "Andalusian" blue and not self-blue/lavender) with either a black or a splash or another blue to stay in the same color type. Crossing a black with a white will not give you blue. A black can only pass on blue if it is a black that is carrying a blue gene; not all blacks do. White has nothing to do with blue, but splash (a whitish or pale bluish with spots of blue) does. I forget exactly which matings give you what percentage of each color.

    The golden duckwing, to keep the color, you will want a hen of the same color.

    Without knowing what color it actually is, who knows about the "orange" one...
