    I just hatched some chicks that were supposed to be all dominique and to my suprise and the breeders some of them came out looking like auracanas apparently they have a sneaky roo. My question is how likely is it that the green egg gene is passed to a chick that the mother is dominique?

    The gene is dominant, and tends to tag along with the pea comb gene
    which if combined with the rose comb of a Dom would make walnut or cushion?
    It's likely any pullets with that sort of comb would lay green or blue egg
