Maybe. I've got some pullets from those hens that are about to lay any day. It was a test breeding to figure out which eggshell genes the rooster has. The barred Rock hens produce black sexlinks, so I knew right from hatch which chicks to keep. Once they start laying, if they all lay green, then my rooster has two blue eggshell genes. If a few lay brown, then he only has one blue eggshell gene.
