so was i right about the split?The hen is a normal blue and the **** is a dominant pied green.
If they are not carrying genes for other mutations their chicks should be about half dominant pied and half normal. They will all be green series unless your **** bird is split for blue
You can't tell if a green bird is split for blue visually. Greens that are split look identical to greens that are not split. Hidden genes are hidden. If a green bird has blue suffusion it could be just the dark factor or it could be a violet factorIf you want to know if the **** bird is split for blue, I think he'd have a blue suffusion (where the green is?). Can anyone confirm this as I am not sure.
Yes, because the only gene the mother can pass on to them is one for blue.I hope it is split for blue. All green series would be too plain Dunno why but I like blue series more than any. But no matter what colour if the lil chicks will be parents they'd be split for blue, wouldn't they?
