    black down chick grows white feathers, 4 gray down chicks grow white feathers, what's going on?

    The gray down is somewhat deceiving, at first i also thought blue/splash but seeing the other siblings, not even one is blue. Also i did not think enough, now that you and nic: "... I had 5 different colored chicks and they all grew to be white" have mentioned, getting a reces white partridge...

    black down chick grows white feathers, 4 gray down chicks grow white feathers, what's going on?

    Yes i agree Amer, if the gray down is very light it would be very difficult if not impossible to determine the sexes based on the white head spot, However, i did get a recessive white birchen chick with black down, the first chick i got back in 2015; i did not have any extended black chickens...

    From the-coop, thread title: Sexing Recessive white Cream Legbars > http://www.the-coop.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=108116 yes indeed recessive white on barred e+ duckwing can be sexed, hopefully, auto-sexing with recessive white plus extended black or birchen is possible...

    black down chick grows white feathers, 4 gray down chicks grow white feathers, what's going on?

    This is spot on, what's happening with the White Jersey Giant- "are a genetically black chicken, with all feather color changed to white, but obviously the down color is not affected nearly as much as the feathers are." thank you very much NatJ! From the mcmurray webpage, the color of the...

    black down chick grows white feathers, 4 gray down chicks grow white feathers, what's going on?

    Understanding ZSB Z+, ZS ZB, ZSB ZS, ZSB ZB and ZSB ZSB

    There is an autosexing chicken breed that i'd like to copy but not as a breed, just a hybrid that will autosex and it is the Polbar. From reading about it, the Z chromosome was described as having both silver and barred genes in a single chromosome. Before this, i only knew of ZS and ZB. Would...

    what would a white leghorn x rir look like?

    I just coined the term double sex linked since a single z chromosome is carrying two sex linked traits/genes, if a single z is carrying 3 sex linked genes then i'd call it triple sex linked or multiple sex linked if the case may be and just identify which sex linked mutations there are. This...

    RIR x White Leghorn cross question.

    "Ok, so back to the original cross placed in the calculator. Where do the all black offspring come from? Maybe I am missing something quite obvious here... looking forward to someone shedding some light on the situation!" The dominant white chicken in the calculator is based on the Extended...

    what would a white leghorn x rir look like?

    Did not expect it but as it turned out the rooster i just received, a cross between a Rhode Island Red Roo over a Dekalb white hen does look like a Birchen ER and barred- the unexpected pleasant surprise (which i need for a project) and exactly what nicalandia said. Already asked the seller if...

    is this the recessive lavender gene over extended black? lavender australorp?

    Wow, thanks for the detailed description; it will serve as a guide! Actually the seller is very likely unfamiliar with the lavender color; he also had a male black australorp in his add pic and he did not want to sell that black roo. He only had 3 heritage chickens the rest of his flock are...

    When he was a chick, the seller said he came from a heritage breeds egg layer farm located at... I know the farm and from their fb posts they have Black Australorps, Barred Plymouth Rocks and Rhode Island Reds. They did/do not have any posts of lavenders. Just acquired him last night and took...

    Pumpkin Hulsey Color Genetics?

    Thanks Tim, yes there are different genotpyes that can express similar phenotype. Add to that the different names used for the same meaning (ie gold in the PI and pumpkin in US) and the same name used for different meanings. so it is confusing for me. But with the help from members here and in...

    Pumpkin Hulsey Color Genetics?

    I was thinking in terms of hair color, one person could have red hair and another black/dark brown. Perhaps there is a more correct term than replace. Or maybe its a different autosomal red or maybe not autosomal red but something else? The reddish brown color is pheomelanin right? The black...
