    wheaten marans and blue wheaten marans
    if you keep them caged together will they produce pure off spring... pure wheaten mixed in with pure blue wheaten ?
    also with a blue wheaten roo and a blue wheaten hen , will they produce blue wheaten chicks ? or a mix of blue/ wheaten

    Yes, you will get wheaten or blue wheaten or splash wheaten

    Oh the ratios are different depending on whether you pair a blue wheaten with a wheaten, a wheaten with a wheaten or a blue wheaten with a blue wheaten. I forget what those ratios are but someone else will come on and let you know I am sure.
