    I believe the white gene is dominant and can hide other color genes. The gray most likely came from the Leghorn (at least I'm assuming that's what the LH stands for).

    Looks like a buff/blue cross, what color is your leghorn?

    Her grandma was a white leghorn. Her mom is a cross and colored like a tetra tint.
