I have a Blue/Cinnamon Cock and a Grey Hen

Just wondering what colours i would get from breeding these?

Also any information on genetics so i can work out other colours would be great

Regards

Michael

I tried to punch it into the calculator for you
http://www.gencalc.com/gen/eng_genc.php?sp=0PsitIR

I got greygreen/blue cinnamon male
green/blue cinnamon male
greygreen cinnamon/blue female
green cinnamon/blue female

that was with a single factor grey for the female.

Heya,

From a Blue /cinnamon cock with a Grey Hen actually produces:

Cocks::
Blue /cinnamon
Blue
Grey /cinnamon
Grey

Hens::
Blue
Grey
Blue Cinnamon (sky blue)
Grey Cinnamon (silver)

You will not know if males are split or not till you breed with them.

A visually grey bird has both grey and blue genes, its just that grey is dominant. Using gencalc, default is green, so clicking only grey = grey green bird as far as it is concerned.

Grey = Blue Grey as far as Gencalc is concerned.

Regarding the Green cock with a Blue hen if the boy is a pure green (not split anything... which is more uncommon than not) all young will be visual green /blue (green split blue).

If your Green cock is Green /blue, your young will be either Blue or Green /blue.

Hope that helps.
