    I am pretty sure these 3 are the purebred boys from my collection of EE eggs that had a BWA father. But, just to be certain, before they are sent on their way, would like expert confirmation - let me know if I need to go back for more pictures... Hopefully I have at least one picture of each of the 3 here:

    Those are all pure bred wheaten roos but their daddy was a pure bred Blue Wheaten Ameraucana.

    Here is one of their brothers... a BWA

    And their daddy.

    BWA X BWA = 25% Wheaten, 50% Blue Wheaten, 25 % Splash Wheaten.

    I have yet to get a splash wheaten.

    Out of my last hatch, I got 17 Wheaten roos and 4 Blue wheaten roos and 0 Splash. Go figure.
