A stupid question is one not asked :) I don't know for sure, but I would think one parent would have to be grey or split for grey.

To get a grey bird one or both of the parents need to be grey or grey-green, they cannot be split for it.

There is a recessive grey mutation, but I belive it is very rare, if not extinct..The grey birds you see in petshops etc are the dominant grey.

I have a lovely grey hen, it is a shame she isn't suitable for breeding, too old and has had health issues.
