So, to start with, I have this beautiful, purebred blue ameraucana that has always laid a small pink egg. This always threw me off, as I've always been told that the blue egg gene, and the pea comb were directly related... well obviously not with her! This year, I hatched eggs from her and my blue egg laying ameraucana crossed with my black copper marans rooster. Out of the three chicks that hatched, two were from her. One has a single comb, the other a pea comb. From my other ameraucana, the one that hacthed has a single comb. My question is, will the chick with the pea comb actually carry the blue egg gene, or will it be like it's mother? and will the single combed chicks have even a small chance of carrying the blue egg gene, due to the mother? Or have I just lucked out and get a bunch of fluffy faced brown egg layers?
