Ash red carrying brown cocks

Post by marksam »

When a cock carries ash red cock and brown base colors, does the brown base color bleed through? Do you have any pictures of an ash red carrying brown cocks?

As far as I know, yes, but I've never seen one in person. I might try to breed one this year to check.

Would you (1) pair a Brown cock to a ash red hen? Or (2) your Ash red Cock carrying blue to a Brown hen? I think the percent of success with pair (1) will be better than pair (2).

I'd pair a brown hen to a homozygous ash red cock, that way all cocks are what we're after: ash red split for brown.
