♀ Cr BC 25% 25%
♀ F Cr BC 25 % 25 %
♀ F BC 25% 12.5%
♀ BC 25% 37.5%

Of the progeny (male and female), 50% are expected to be split for Penguin. The single male of the progeny is assumed to be Black Cheek/Lightback (whether or not he is also for Fawn or Penguin or both must be verified by test breeding).
