I just hatched out three little yellow chicks that are either from a silver laced wyandotte or a golden laced wyandotte crossed with a buff orp. The feathers on two are coming in cream colored with a dusting of black it seems. These are the chicks. I don't have good pictures of the wing feathers. They are zippy little things! So the question is, is lacing sex linked in a blended chick? Will the male chicks feather out lacing or partial lacing and the female chicks be solid? Also, daddy is buff colored. Mama is either white with black lacing or brown with black lacing. Could the white from the SLW dilute the buff color to make it more cream? Sorry for all the questions. I'm clueless when it comes to genetics.
