I need some help with chick down genetics. I need to know definitively the chick down colors for the following crosses. Sire for all crosses is Light Sussex being eWh/eWh Co/Co S/S.
Over a hen:

eb Dark Brown Leghorn
e+ Light Brown Leghorn
Rhode Island Red
White Leghorn
Thanks so much for your help!!
Looking to discern if any of the chick downs above can be mistaken for pure Light Sussex.

Hi, I am new to this forum and so happy to have found it! I am a biology teacher and my favorite topic to teach is genetics. I am new to chicken color genetics and want to learn more. I recently bought Silkie (Sizzle) hatching eggs from a breeder. I am curious about one of the Silkie chick's genotype and phenotype.

The breeder has two kinds of buff, blue cream, splash and black in her flock.

Here is a link to a web page I created. Please take a look! If anyone can construct a possible genotype and (adult phenotype) I would greatly appreciate it. smile
