One chicken parent carrying two blue genes will get you pullets that lay colored eggs; green eggs from a parent with brown egg coating genes, blue eggs from a parent with white egg genes.
If you breed Easter eggers, since you are not sure exactly what combination of genes you are combining, you can get pullets that lay any color egg. I have bred a rooster that hatched from a green egg to a hen that laid green eggs and got pullets that laid green eggs and pullets that laid brown eggs.
