    I have a blue roo who's dad is out of Maria Hall's flock, and a couple McMurray hens. Love the eggs from the hens - no blood spots whatsoever, which is a trait I'd like to hold onto in future generations. My better quality hen related to my rooster lays eggs that have lots of blood spots. Can someone please tell me what kind of offspring I'd get breeding blue roo to white hens? Thanks, Janel
    If someone can tell me how I'll post a pic of Cassius Clay, my blue roo. I uploaded the pic, but that's as far as I got. Thanks.

    The Whites would most likely be masking Black so breeding a Blue to them would give Blacks and Blues that would be carriing one copy of rec. White

    Thanks for the info. Would I get splashes and whites, too?

    Probably not in first generation

    Quote:Not in the first generation, you would only get blacks and blues, if you bred those blues together you would get some splashes and if you bred any of the blues or blacks together or back to the white hens, you would get a percentage of white chicks from that as well since some of them would pick up two copies of rec white.
