Default Possible colouration?

Hi i jst bought eggs from an ebay seller, right now im jst waiting for them to hatch (1 or 2 days away from hatching) and i noticed a couple of them has golden tint added to their colour and with no freckles...... is it possible that some of my eggs are golden??? im jst curious because the seller described the mum leucistic and the dad wildtype....... is it possible that one of the parents were carrying a golden gene?? anyways gold or not im not really bothered but i think it would be good to hv all three colours :)

I think you are trying to type your axolotls much to early, counting chickens before they are hatched seems an appropriate expression! Nonetheless it is possible to get golden albinos from such a cross if both parents are carriers of the albino gene.
