Blue Quail Belgian d'Anver Bantams are known as Blue Belgian Bearded d'Anver Bantams in the Standard. They have the same genetic makeup as Quail Belgian d'Anvers with the addition of the incompletely dominant Blue (Bl) gene that does not breed true. Standard weight at maturity are male-26 oz, and hen-22 oz. The blue (Bl) gene only has an effect on black plumage resulting in blue plumage when the blue gene is present in the heterozygous state (Bl bl). Other plumage colors are not affected by the blue gene. When blue (Bl bl) males are mated with blue (Bl bl) females, the ratio of colors produced is as follows: 1 black (bl bl), 2 blue (Bl bl) and 1 splash (Bl Bl) (white with a blue cast). Any blue variety ordered from Ideal Poultry may include chicks with black, blue or splash plumage patterns. will it breed like the discreption of the blue gene or does it not breed true period?
