I finally found a really good link for chicken FEATHER-color genetics. And I can't recall who sent me to that link, but thank you none the less. However, now I want to learn about egg color genetics. I hear "mint-green eggs" and "pink eggs" and then there's the blue, brown, green, and white. I can already guess that "mint green" and "pink" eggs are just pale versions of green and brown. And I believe I saw someone mention on these forums that green is actually blue with a brown overlay. Or maybe vice versa. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone can actually explain the genetics of egg colors, and how each color may "taint" another, or only show through in part like the pink and mint-green eggs. This may become a long thread with me asking many questions spawned off of answers to others. But please bear with me, I'm trying to fill in the blanks in my head. If you have any corrections to the information above, feel free to share it to help me clear things up, too. First, I'll start off with pink and mint green. Are these possibly eggs created from the brown and green layers, where the chicken was bred back to a WHITE egg-layer such as a leghorn?
