    I have a chick that hatched and so far, it is all pale yellow with a gray cap but the feathering is coming in pure white. could I get an all white chick from a blr splash x blr wyandottes? chick is only 5 days old at this point.

    If each parent is carrying one gene of recessive white, yes.

    so I should expect more of these all white chicks? I figured I get splash laced but not all white.

    Splashing can take a L---O---N----G time to come in. Not always, but it can.
