Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Default Genes

I've seen a few posts about genes but haven't really seen an answer to my question. My leucistic & golden albino have just laid eggs & they are dark coloured so what colours are they likely to be? & also if as adults they were to lay eggs could they still possibly have light gene babies?

Genetics is complicated, if you know the grandparent colours it may help.
But you'll get at least 50% wildtypes from that pairing, possibly 100%.

All but albinos lay dark eggs. The babies will loose their pigments as they grow. Albino femails lay whiye eggs, and babies develop pigment if they are not going to be albino.

Talking Re: Genes

Thanks for that both of you that's been really helpful! Some of them have hatched and I can see some of them looking more leucistic
