    I have two ameracauna roosters and 4 RIR and two white leghorns they all get along fine. I was just wondering will the chicks lay brown eggs or blue or green? Since ameracaunas are known to lay different colored eggs.

    Welcome! The chicks that will come out of the RIR will be green egg layers. The ones that come out of the Leghorns will be light blue or mint green. It all depends on the roosters genetics, Ameraucanas can lay blue to blue green eggs.

    If the roosters are Easter Eggers then you have a chance of the eggs being other colors.
