Default Color of pups

I have a true chocolate and white female ( sire:chocolate/ dam: tri color) that I am planning on breeding and hoping to get a chocolate pup or two out of the litter. I have a lemon and white male (both sire and dam are lemon and white) and a tri color male (sire: tri color/ dam:lemon and white) to breed her to. I read online that a lemon bred to a chocolate will only produce tri color pups. Not sure if this is correct. I know there are no guarantees as far color unless she was bred to another chocolate. Would like to know if either of these males is more likely to produce chocolate pups from this female. Thanks.

I think that it all depends on whether either of the males has any chocolate genes in their bloodlines. Even then it's a crapshoot because it depends on the combining of her genes and theirs. JMO.

Thanks rangerdon. To simplify this question has anyone on here ever bred a chocolate and white dog to a lemon and white dog? If so what color were the puppies in the litter?

Look at Lemon Drop Beagles web page. They explain color dominance pretty well. It's complicated but interesting.
