If you cross a leghorn (white shell) with an rir (brown shell), what color eggs would you get?
D brown + white usually equals a light brown egg.
Yep, light brown eggs.
White eggs just pale whatever they're combined with.
And that would be the same whether the female was laying the brown eggs or the white eggs? Whether you crossed a male from a brown egg with a white egg laying female, or a male from a white egg with a brown egg laying female? The females would always lay pale in-betweeny coloured eggs?
I'm no expert at the gene thing, but all my mutts have a varying shade of shell color depending on the parents.
I get alot of light brown eggs....
thank you so far!
