    Yeah they had just been put in the pen after a hour or so drive.. What will I get if she is IB pied white eye and he is IB PIED so IB PIED WE X IB PIED? Sorry I'm really not good with genetics

  5. The same as I stated above, 25% White, 25% IB Dark Pied, and 50% Pied. Some may or may not carry the WE gene. If it is a single factor WE meaning that one of the two chromosomes that are passed on have the WE gene, the chick might get the one with or without. Maybe only 25% will have a single WE gene. It takes two WE genes to have a nearly full WE train.
