I'm still trying to grasp some basic blue genetics, so please forgive me if this has been asked before. Using Halo's beautiful Blue Roo as an example, she bred her barred rock girls to him. I understand the males will be barred and the girls blue. I get that part. What I am not getting is what genetics those blue girls are going to carry. Even though they appear blue, are they really, genetically blue, or will they carry some barred genes that will pop out later when they are bred? Or will that barring only pop out if they are bred to someone else who also had a barred parent? What effect would a barred grandparent make? Likewise, those blue barred roos--what will they throw when they are bred? If they are bred back to a barred hen, will their babies still have some blue genes? Will those genes be hidden for a generation and pop up later? (And your Mr. B is soooo gorgeous, Halo! I love his color!) Thanks for any help!
