Update 30th April. Day 10

Post  zipdogso on Tue May 01 2012, 02:06

3 satinettes probably...whites ???????

I suspect your white satinette is recessive in which case unless your brown is carrying recessive white you wont see a white they will all be yellow/ rec. white carriers.

Right there are a number of things for you to check first then we can establish what you have.

1st The cock is a White Satinette fact. but what type of White [Dominant or Recessive]
To determin this have a close look at the cock and his wing flights to see if there is any sign of yellow there if there is then it will be a dominant white.

2nd With you using a brown hen all the Satinette chicks produced will be hens as has already been mentioned.


As for all the Satinette chicks being white it is a little early to tell for certain, but I do believe I can see some pretty white feathering breaking out.
So fingers crossed, with the white aspect any of the chicks could be white if the cock bird is Dominant white usually a nest where one of the parents is Dominant white a ratio of 50% of the chicks will be white theoretically speaking.


Recessive White is the type that shows no other ground colour other than white and means that both parents have to carry at least the recessive white gene if only in hidden form for recessive white chicks to be produced.

This is why I suggest you see if you can detect any yellow in the cock bird.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Red devil,


Great easy to understand explanation.

I'll have a look once the chicks are a bit older as I don't want to unsettle things to much in the cage just yet.

Regards

Sorry Steve.....

I should of explained like Red did.....

I am working on the idea that the satinette is a recessive white because las year I was searching for domnant white satinettes and there weren't any available... only recessive whites so I took it that your bird was a recessive white....sorry if I jumped the gun a bit...but Red saw you right.

Steve just had a look at you last updated photo's, and the top Satinette chick which I'm sure you will think it's white
is showing signs to me of being Yellow Ivory but it is still early days to be absolutely clear what it is.

Yes, I think your bob on there.
I looked today and there is definitely yellow showing, possibly on 2 of them[list=1][*]
