    BCM Chick development, male vs female

    Potential egg color from new rooster

    Hello! I recently acquired a cockerel who’s mom is a black copper Marans and dad is an ameracauna. I am wondering if he breeds with my EE if the chicks could be olive eggers or if they will carry the blue egg gene.
