    I was wondering what the offspring ratios will be... would they all be black or would there be some blues and whites?

    Some blue, some black. Should not be any whites.

    Remeber these percentages work best with large hatching numbers. 100 or a 1000, but with small hatches such as 5 or 6 it could easily be all of one or the other or a different percentage of one color to another.
