Cross Breed Eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This might be in the wrong forum but does anyone know what color eggs a brown egg layer crossed with a blue egg layer will lay? I believe they were Cream Legbar Mother and black australorp father. Thanks for any knowledge!

Likely green.

Brown + blue should = green. Theoretically some blue egg layers have one blue and one white gene, so the white gene could get passed to the offspring. In that case you would get light brown eggs.

 

A black Australorp rooster over a CCL hen should give you sex linked offspring. the males should have white spots on the head at hatch and feather out barred. The pullets will have a solid head and be non-barred when they feather out.
