So I'm still trying to wrap my head around genetics. And what gets passed down from parent to ken. So I just recently hatched two eggs from my hatch that were beautiful green eggs. So father was a pure breed Barred rock mother was a EE obviously. Now do the chicks automatically get the coloring laying gene. Or are they guaranteed to lay brown eggs. I'm just curious do they have the chance to lay the colored eggs. Is that gene always passed down. Like what if I breed the mixed EE/barred rock baby (when it get older) with say a RIR or black austrlorp etc.. Would those baby's still have the colored egg gene. And if so how long will this gene be passed on till it's just not there anymore?
