I'm wondering about the genetics for b/b/s copper marans
I ordered black copper maran hatching eggs and hatched out blue, black and splash
they are all beautiful
but I am wondering, do the genetics work like b/b/s ameraucana?
Below is what I would expect. Please correct me if needed!!!

black x black = all black offspring
black x blue = 50% black, 50% blue
black x splash = 100% blue
blue x blue = 25% black, 50% blue, 25% splash
blue x splash = 50% blue, 50% splash
splash x splash = 100% splash

Quote:So my blue pen will produce
blue x blue = 25% black, 50% blue, 25% splash

And my black pen will produce
black x black = 100% black

Yes, it is the same with any breed or crosses.

Like cross a Black Marans with a Splash Ameraucana and you will get all Blue Olive eggers.

Same for the other percentages.
