    By my calculator is says they will be Blue chicks, but there has been other post about the recessive colors..................

    Maybe someone else knows for sure.

    There is no way of making even an educated guess. White is an OFF switch that turns off the display of all colour and pattern genes present in the bird. Since they cannot be seen and selected for or against, every white is different.
