    I love candling eggs [​IMG] I don't know much about genetics, but I'm sure someone will pass by.

    That's wonderful that your eggs are doing so well [​IMG] Good luck & hope you have a great hatch. To answer you question about genetics: Black x Blue = 50% Black & 50% Blue

    I think a Blue and Black together should produce 50%Blue, 50% Black. I was researching yesterday for the same thing. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in.

    Good luck with the eggs [​IMG]
