RIR - babes would be blue or black with the copper-red around their neck, hens would lay darker brown eggs.
White Leghorn - This is dominate white so all the babes would be white with some black spots maybe, they would grow up white though, the males may show red leakage on the wings. egg color would be lighter than other white layers mixed with a marans. The leghorn may be hiding other colors though, like barring or blue or black.
Ameraucana - babes could be black, blue, or splash with the copper around their necks possibly. Eggs would be olive from hens.
