    I have a pretty little d'uccle hen from the feed store that looks like a gold neck but she is a yellow color. What genes does she have and could she be used to create lemon millies? Or is she just a 'hatchery quality' gold neck? I love her color & want to know if I can make more or even some lemon millies.

    And her daughter, Snowflake. Her dad was the lavender OEGB in the second picture:

    And Snowflake's full brother, Louis XIV.
