Default Mutation of New Hen

Well, here is the surprise that I was talking about! I will be breeding this lovely girl and Echo later on this summer for my senior project. I'll be tracking the genetics, especially the sex-linked traits. I need to condition both of them for 6 weeks before I breed them. I have decided to name her Charlie to go along with the Jurassic World theme (2nd movie comes out in exactly 1 week!) I picked her up from a local breeder, who said she was a proven mom that raised sweet chicks. For now, Charlie is settling in with a partially covered cage. She and the boys are already calling to each other though.


To me, she looks like a green sf dominant pied...I can't quite tell because she's pied, but she also looks opaline to me. Your thoughts?

She is absolutely gorgeous, congratulations!

She is a dark green sf dominant pied opaline, you're correct

You should write down her parents' genetics as well, since you know Echo's. That way you're able to keep straight which genes came from whose side of the family

Best of luck with this very exciting project!

Thank you! The breeder doesn't have record of her parents, unfortunately. All I do know is that she said that all of her chicks from her last clutch were yellow based. She didn't remember who she paired Charlie with so don't know if he was also yellow based. Perhaps Charlie is split for blue or maybe she'll have all yellow-based chicks. But should be interesting since she's also opaline...half their chicks should express it then and half of their daughters should express the cinnamon mutation. Hoping to get some df dominant pieds from this pairing too! Can't wait to fully delve into all the traits and genetics, but I'll leave that for their future breeding journal lol.
