After going to the flea market my oldest daughter wants Lemon Blue OE bantams for her birthday. The only problem is I don't remember seeing them there. If anyone has any pictures, I would love to see what I am looking for.

Thanks so much

Yes there Brown Red with Blue added...

And I am right they "act" like a Blue.

Lemon Blue X Blue = 50% Lemon Blue, 25% Brown Red, 25% Splash/ Sport
Lemon Blue X Splash/ Sport = 50% Lemon Blue, 50% Splash/ Sport
Lemon Blue X Black = 50% Lemon Blue, 50% Brown Red

WOW!!!! I was hoping it wasn't going to be confusing.

So if my daughter got a pair of the Lemon Blue OE....the color would not breed true?

No The blue color in any breed even if it is in a pattern does not breed true.

If you breed lemon blue to lemon blue you will get 50% lemon blues, 25% brown reds, and 25% Lemon Splashes. ( they will have the lemon color in the same place but instead of blue, it will look white with with black and blue splashes. But Splash is not white. I imagine Lemon Splashes being a really pretty color.

Quote:Okay. I am glad I asked, My daughter and I would have been really surprised when the color of the next generation changed.

I thought maybe they would be self blue. Second generation stays blue on those , right?
