As mine turned up from a visually normal pair, and he was a cock. I think they are recessive.

Thanks for the reply. I have a spare coloured cock that I will put with a normal hen and we will see what we get.

Logically you will get all normals split for pink.

Pretty sure pink is actually fawn in African fires so autosomal recessive meaning a colour to a normal all split young which is the same as the fawn painted.
