I've ordered a handful of Sultans (standard, white) which I am hoping to cross with an Ameraucana rooster. The rooster is blue Wheaton. The angle I'm hoping to go for is a fancier Easter egger type, with beards and muffs and possibly feathering on legs. I want to end up with sand coloured birds. I'm hoping over the generations of selection I can achieve this. Is there anyone out there who has crossed with Sultans before? Do they carry dominant genes that I should know about when crossing? Mixing a blue egg breed with a white egg breed, does that give a paler colour of blue?
