Yet another creation we have developed a "Chocolate Slate" !
Genotype: BBDdee for toms and BBDde- for hens.
Black based with a single slate gene and the addition of brown genes.
These look basically like a blue slate except the normal areas of random black splashes are replaced with brown splashes on a blue base color.
When breeding these three results will occur which is sort of similiar to a typical Blue Slate breeding.
The Chocolate Slate will produce three colors:
Chocolate Slate, a pale Self Blue and Chocolate. The latter two will breed true.
Weights: Old Toms approx. 33 lbs. Old Hens 18 lbs.
Just Hatched 1 week of age.
