    THere are two different white genes: dominant white and recessive white. With an EE, it is difficult to know whether she is dominant white or recessive white. If she is dominant, the chicks will be white, but may well leak red/buff in gender colour areas of the body. If she is recessive white, there is no way to predict what the offspring will look like.
