    their father was a blue wheaten and the moms were mossy black coppers.i read somewhere where the mossies have wheaten blood.is that right?
    they lay very dark brown eggs.
    not sure if you remember but this is the cross where i was asking you all the genetics ?'s.you were still waiting on your first olive eggs at the time.well,this is what they made.

    edited to say that the father was a blue wheaten ameraucana only.i had the wheaten seperated at the time of your eggs. [​IMG]

    Because the Marans thread is so huge and (sorry) half of it is filled with chatter, I really don't know. Never read into mossiness enough to say if that is true or not. All I know is that none of my Marans are mossy, none of the Black Coppers have ever given me Wheatens.
