Easy problem. Almond is sex-linked. Any non-almond cock to an almond hen will produce ALL almond cocks and ALL non-almond hens. Now, you have something else going on as well. You have added ash-red from the cock into the mix. He's obviously heterozgyous for wild-type as well (see the blue/black feathers as well). So some of your almond cock youngsters will be wild-type almond (blue/black), some will be heterozygous ash-red almond; you will also breed some ash-red non-almond hens, and also wild-type (blue/black) non-almond hens.
