    Coronation (Blue) Sussex:
    These birds are the result of a breeding project several years in the making--and they are now ready to be introduced. These are blue-gene birds; as many of you know the blue gene works differently than the lavender gene. Currently, I have two coops that have black on blue and one coop with blue on black. The black on blue Roosters are GreenFireFarms Light Sussex.

  2. These are absolutely gorgeous birds. The blue feathers are much nicer in feel and colroation than the lavender. No more split lavender feathers. This is a treasure for anyone looking for big healthy Sussex.

    Quote:Yes the feathering is much stronger and more color variations, from a dove grey to a violet blue...

    Very interesting birds, what would you expect the chicks to hatch out as?

    Chicks will be white at first. [​IMG]
    Then they will either be blue feathered or black (Coronation or Light Sussex)

    Black x Black = 100% Black
    Black x Blue = 50% Black, 50% Blue [​IMG]

    Blue x Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black and 25% Splash

    Splash x Black = 100% Blue

    Splash x Blue = 50% Splash and 50% Blue

    Splash x Splash = 100% Splash

    Whats really nice is eventually you will get a almost all white Sussex (SPLASH)
