It is a sex-linked mating. The 3 base colors are only on the X chromosome. The sons inherit two colors while the daughters only inherit one, from the dad. The sons would get a blue gene from dad and a red one from mom. Red is dominant so that is what shows. The hens get blue from the dad.

how do you know how does it work can you tell me alittle
What we have here is called a sex linked mating. The first thing you most understand is the cock has two color genes and the hen carrys only one The second thing is that ASH RED is dominant over blue/black and brown. The third thing is that the red hen gives her color to the male youngster and the cock passes one of his color genes to the male so a blue cock can only pass one of his 2 color genes blue. So because ash red is the dominant color the young male will be red and will be carring a second color for blue. The female gets a blue color gene from her father, in this case blue, she gets NO color gene from her mother, so she will be blue.That is a sex linked mating.GEORGE;)
