I thought it had to be at least 5 generations to breed true, but I'm not sure either. :scratch:
It does sound like she's pulling a fast one though. You shouldn't get 3 different colours from 1 lot of 'pure breed' eggs, IMO. ;)
Happy in Hampshire!

Not always gregg, other colours get used to create or improve another colour. Your gold brahmas is an established colour therefore breeds true.

Less of the dorset........i'm a moonshiner (wiltshire) What i'm saying is the breed maybe pure but the colour isnt breeding true yet. Although i agree it does sound dodgy throwing 3 colours.
