hi there,

greywing is recessive to normal, so both the parents must be split for it. hens can be split for most recessive varieties, just not the sex-linked ones like opaline etc.

if they turn out to have full body colour, rather than diluted, they could be full bodied greywings. That is a combination of greywing and clearwing, meaning your chick has received a greywing gene from one parent and a clearwing gene from another.
