Does anybody remember the site for crossing chicken breeds?

Hi Everybody! :)

I am trying to locate the neat site for crossing chicken breeds - you put in the two breeds you want to cross, and it pops out with a guess about what the offspring would be like. Anybody remember where that site is?

Thanks!


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Is that the genetics calculator they talk about on ACE?  I wish I could help, but I've never used it. If you find it plug in Silkie/EO cross for me and see what comes out??

Re: Does anybody remember the site for crossing chicken breeds?

Thanks Susan!

With that memory jog, I was able to find it....

http://edelras.nl/Henk69/Overzicht.htm#kipcalculator

This site only offers info on colour crosses. I put in "crele" for the eo (I think it's the closest thing?) and put in different colours of birds that I could cross eo's with. I have some splash silkie pullets - according to the calculator, this would result in birds that were blue, unicolour and barred. That could be cute in a silkie cross!

Other possible silkie crosses (if I have the crele part right) would be black (results: black unicolour barred), white (results: crele), partridge (results: crele) and buff (results: indecipherable by me!).

Anybody got a different thought than "crele" to describe the eo colour? Or am I quite off in my memory of what crele is?

Stefan, for fun I put in crele for male and siliver spangled for female. This resulted in something indecipherable, but we could give it a really cool name - maradunna spitzhauben? Maraspitz? Dunhauben? Appenloia? :lol:

We definitely need a name for a silkie/maradunna cross..... =D

crele is probably as close as you would get in a calculator to marraduna.  I have had some Spitzhauben EE cross they turned out mostly black with a spangled chest and a very interesting comb!  maybe the marraduna spiz will have barred spangles! :lol:
