    Do you still have these? Would I be correct to say that all these carry the blue gene?

    Yes, I do still have them-they are with their mama and her other chicks.
    Black birds do not carry the blue gene, therefore will not produce any blue birds unless mated to a splash or a blue. For instance, if you mate one of these blacks to black, there will be only blacks, no blues from that. These did come from a blue rooster over a blue hen, though, not from a black to black mating.
