Golden/Italian is dominant. I think white is recessive.

From my hatch, I assume Range is dominant. I have a chick with a tux Mum, and a golden dad that is range. The Dad's parents were golden and normal.

Just out of interest - is the tux a normal/white mix or range/white mix?

range and white. Doesn't look like chickie is a tux though, its chest isn't yellow.

My other 2 chicks are normal...despite one of them having two golden parents! Sneaky thing grabbed the recessives...
