A variety that we developed by adding brown to a slate.
Genotype: BB Dd ee for toms and BB Dd e- for hens.
Black base with dominant slate and brown.
They 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 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.
