@junebuggena in your last post you said "The gene for the blue shell is dominant over the genes for white shells... The blue of the blue shell gene does not dilute over several generations. Birds with one copy of the blue shell gene can lay eggs that are just as blue as birds with two copies." Why then, since blue is dominant over white and the blue gene does not dilute over time, do three of my pullets lay blue eggs that are almost white? If crossed with my wheaten Ameraucana cockerel what are the chances the offspring will lay a nice shade of blue instead of off white like the two pullets? Thanks.

 

@Sylvester017 Sorry my other comment wasn't entirely clear... In a previous comment you said that two f your hens are easter eggers and two lay brown eggs. The statistical results I mentioned included all the hens. If the rooster has the genes needed for green eggs (blue and brown) then half of his offspring with the brown layers will be green and half brown. There is a slight chance you'll get a blue layer out of the easter x easter egger crosses. I hope that makes more sense.

The shade of blue can be highly variable, suggesting that there are other, unknown, factors that contribute to the coloring. Blue/green eggs also fade overtime.

:barnie I said "genes needed for green eggs" and "genes for green eggs" implying the blue and brown genes that contribute to producing a green egg.

 

nit picker. :rolleyes: 

Actually that wasn't directed at you, but I see I had misread the post anyway. Sorry for the misunderstanding. :hide

All these conversations over the blue egg genes is interesting (and confusing) but nevertheless interesting.  I'm going back to the marans club A Review in Egg Color and see if I can figure it out with some study :/. It's technical but just as interesting.

Nope you're good. I subscribe to no illusions of perfection. If anything I was the "other end".:lol:

Congrats! Nice olive egg. Midnight's first egg looks HUGE! Are those speckled eggs guinea eggs?
