What do I get when I breed "this" to "that"???

by percentage, gender and potential crossover (recombinant genetics)
What is this strange color? Why did I have this unusual//rare trait or
fault occur? What is happening to my breeding stud?
- Analysis of new, rare or unusual color mutations you own or have bred
- Concerns on genetic inheritance: lethal genes, faults, undesirable health
traits                      affecting health issues, production, fertility, and longevity
