I am fairly new to the genetics of chickens. I am wracking my brain trying to remember Mendolson’s peas from high school biology! My white Ameraucona hen has gone broody twice this year. ( I know they are not known to go broody). Sweet Cheeks has done a magnificent job. She is a big girl and hatched 10 chicks. These are a barnyard mix of eggs, but I do have a sweet Lavender Roo ( from the Paul Smith line, who likes to cuddle) in the mix. I am wondering what color will emerge from lavender and white since lav dilutes colors? I have one white ameraucona with blue legs and I have four “blue/gray chicks with blue legs- will they be self blue? See photo- a day old!
