Morning Peeps, I am having a gene question. I used to know this but when I got away from laying breeds then i brainwashed myself. I have been watching the egg market lately and everyone is looking for blue eggs in my area but everyone I know sells brown or white. I had this idea many years ago but never did it. I was thinking of breeding the best white laying chicken known to man (White Leghorn) to a few Araucana or Ameraucana hens. I am aiming for a leghorn sized, feed ratio, and egg producing bird but only with the blue egg gene added. I guess my best luck would be to only use a white ameraucana or araucana hens for the project. Anyone got any they wanna trade on or anything. Anyhow here is my plan... Gen 1: White Leghorn X White Araucana or Ameraucana Gen 2: White Leghorn X Gen 1 Gen 3: White Leghorn x Gen 2 and so on and so on. Keeping only the chickens that are mostly white or pure white in color and laying blue eggs. I am not positive on this but if I were to keep breeding a new white leghorn rooster over all the blue egg hens each generation they should remain blue eggs if I am correct. So someone give me some pointers on this, you can post or text me at 864-423-2924. Nothing better then Chicken Texting. Advice, Ideas, All is appreciated.
