    They're both splash patterned mottled patterned, so the offspring will be the same as the parents mostly. You may get black, or blue offspring with mottling, it's also possible you might get split mottleds.

    Cute, looks like my mix. Not sure with genetics but the parents looked like that and got this. Screenshot 2019-10-18 at 9.39.54 AM.png

    Would dominant white be a possible different color in her genes? Like if she was bred with the same color possible chance of a different color? Sorry I haven't breed my chickens before so I'm quite confused.

    If you zoom into OP's picture you can see the mottling.

    Dominate white if breed to red will produce offspring with white plumage with red leakage, because red is hard for dominate white to cover.
    Dominate white + Dominate white = Dominate white Offspring.
    It's possible for dominate white to hide other color genes, & is more common with Recessive white.
