I want to make sure I get this right, so, the females would be solid lavender and the males will be cuckoo. Cool!!
Thanks!!


ETA: Oh, what color eggs will the resulting hens lay....or is that even possible to know?

Ok, just so I understand this correctly, because I'm totally clueless about this:

Lavender Orp roo X Golden Cuckoo Marans hen

Black chicks=hens
Birchen chicks= roos

You would have to breed the chicks together, or back to the lav to get lav chicks, but they wouldn't be sexlinked. Lav is ressive and both parents have to have a copy of the gene
