    Ameraucana/ Barnevelder Cross

    I have a pure lavender ameraucana rooster, and a barnevelder hen I'm thinking about breeding this year. Has anybody crossed this pair and gotten nice olive eggs? Or are they likely to come out more like an EE egg? I know most people use marans for the dark brown eggs but I don't have any of...

I don't know all the right colouring terms or whatnot, but I bred my primarily red EE rooster to three different black Australorps and got 2 identical grey (or blue might be the right term) chicks and 1 black chick. The 2 greys are both...
