    When I got my pair of Golden Laced Bantam Cochins earlier this year, I waited a full 3 weeks before I started collecting eggs to hatch. Out of the first eggs I collected, these two little guys hatched. Obviously, Mom was still fertile from some other roo, as the pair were kept by themselves once I got them. Any ideas as to who the Daddy(s), is? Jazz hatched 5/22; Calypso hatched 5/26. I think I'm going to keep Calypso - his colors are very intriguing and I want to see how he matures. The breeder I got my pair from also raises and shows Birchen, Mottled, Partridge, and Brown Red, among other colors.

    Wow! I'd keep them both. I would have thought they were part of an MF project. No idea who the dad could be though!

    Jazz looks like a MF project - lol. I'd say Golden Laced X Mottled.

    Calypsp - looks like a Gold Laced X Patridge or mottled as well. [​IMG]

    Quote:Guess I need to head back to my genetics books! Here's what I'm remembering - Golden Laced x Mottled is, I believe, the formula for Tollbunt.

    I believe that both Golden Laced and Partridge are eb, and both also carry the Pg pattern gene. I think the biggest difference between the two may be that Golden Laced also carry the Co Columbian gene, and there is no Columbian in the Partridge. But from there, I have no idea what you get when you cross the two.

    As far as future breeding, probably the best will be to put Calypso back on his mother, the Golden Laced, and see where that takes me.
