WOOOOO My SiAm eggs are in the mail and she threw in some BW eggs to make sure I had extras and that the eggs could be shipped fresh. Super exciting! Now I want to use my split choc boy and some blue wheatens to make choc wheaten, wouldn't that be pretty!?

I thought Fowl Stuff said be careful about having both blue and Silver, but I can't remember why.post #30693 of 348273/1/16 at 12:10pmpost #30694 of 348273/1/16 at 12:10pm
I got two whites last year, but I gave them to my friend thinking they were splash. I am not sure if they came from my Lavs or my BBS pen, The parents were from P Smith. I am doing a little better organizing this year, so I should know who the roo is at least, if I hatch any white. The two whites that she got, both were roos. Since I am wanting them, chances are, they won't appear.post #30695 of 348273/1/16 at 12:12pmpost #30696 of 348273/1/16 at 1:11pmQuote:Originally Posted by jerryse
This thread is busy today . I got a white pullet out of some that trace back to a lavender split hen I got from Paul . I think the white came from some Lavender Paul got from Harry . I picked up a pair of whites last fall to go with her . Hatched some out of those plus my lavender split hens covered by the white rooster . So I will also have whites based on Paul's blacks . I will use the black/white pullets next year to increase my number of whites .
Since those are recessive white, would they hatch out with the pale blue chick down, instead of white? I know my dominant whites hatched out yellow and feathered out white, but these would just about have to be recessive, right?post #30697 of 348273/1/16 at 1:19pmQuote:
Yes they are recessive . Recessive chick down can vary depending on what it is based on . Smokey down is common when based on black . I have seen a range from smokey to white , Yellow is typical of dominant white .Charter member of the Ameraucana Alliance. Helped develop the breed.Charter member of the Ameraucana Alliance.

Well, given that bit of information, it is possible those chicks, from the splash pen, are white. :)
