    I have chicks with an EE for a mother and a Silver Laced Wyandotte......so will the pullets lay green eggs like their mother? Or since their father wasn't an EE,will they lay brown eggs? Maybe I just have to wait and see.

    Well, i crossed a cochin to an EE and about half the hens laid colored eggs and the other half brown......so i would say 50/50.
