I currently have a mixed flock of 5 hens (2 Australorps, 1 NH Red, 1 Barred Cochin, and 1 that I'm pretty sure is an EE). A few of my favorite breeds I'd like to integrate are Wyandottes (love their feather pattern), some colored eggs layers (prefer some blue or green shades),possibly a couple lavender orphingtons, and maybe a silkie or 2. I've had my current flock for a couple years now but I'm new to the whole breeding but my ideal situation would be to have birds that look more like wyandottes but lay blue/green eggs. I've considered possibly getting 1 wyandotte roo and 1 EE, Aracuana, or Ameracuana and just having 2 roos but I don't know how well that would work. So if it comes down to just getting 1 or the other then which would be best to achieve the wyandotte look with possible colored egg layers?
