Color of new chicks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Was wondering why all my new chicks that I am hatching are turning out gray.
I have a buff roo and a splash hen.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! Genetics and colours are not really my thing but I believe the blue splash gene to be dominate. I had a splash roo and all of his offspring were blue.
You might like to check out this link, it's a colour calculator ~http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm#kipcalculator

You might like to ask in the genetic threads too, here is the link ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-amp-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection

Good luck I hope members in that section can help you further.

Enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
