Several people have hatched chicks from my BR roos over my Blue Ameraucana hen. I have one daughter of Zane's with Charlotte myself. She doesn't have a beard, although she did get the pea comb and white skin. Her barring is actually better than I expected from this cross, but anyway..my question is why do all the others from this cross have a beard and Panda doesn't? Is it just the luck of the draw with the combining genes? Just wondering about it. Here is a picture of Panda with her constant companions, the GLW and Shadow, my only bantam.
