    I would say that Also depending on the cross the name should applie..


    Olive egger if its cross to Maran/Welsummer

    Super Blue Egger if cross to Leghorn/White egg shell prolific egg layer...

    Blue/Green egger is cross to normal Dual Purpose breeds

    EE if cross to Easter eggers/Emeraucana/Araucana

    we talked about that before. The tought was since my RIW x CL wing and tail feathers were such a clean white it was said the RIW were dominant white. Since hatchery or production white birds can often be mutts im still not certain that their dominant white. The RIW X CL males come out a pretty clean white. And the females have color throughout the whole bird wings and tail[​IMG]When i bred a lavender ameraucana to my RIW the hen was splash looking with black spots, white feathers and dirty dirty white feathers. The males also come out dirty.[​IMG]
    I remember what you guys told me as far as dominant white covers black but allows red to come threw. Should my RIW X AM not have black spots in the hen and the black feathers in my roo and those tiny black specs in his tail if they are dominant white

    Or some of the first crosses I'd heard of where what we called Amelia's on the NorCal thread . Penedesenca x legbars . I think they where named that do to the flighty nature

    Ive also read of lavenders being maid with white ameraucana not just black. Would lavender work with both types of white or does it only work with non dominant white

    lavender and recessive white(in the case of Ameraucanas) will produce white birds...if both are homozygous ofcourse

    Steen. As I recall she was getting white out of lavender. Recessive white. To get lavender out of white you would need dominant white.
