Ok, so I have a quad of black bantam Ameraucanas from John Blehm (GORGEOUS!!). And, I picked up a quad of lavender bantam "ameraucanas" (as ADVERTISED) from someone that I had to drive over an hour to get. He swore to me that they were not "hatchery" birds, and that he had been breeding his birds for years. They are very typy. They have beautiful combs, are all definitely lavender, and all have definitely slate legs. (Wouldn't let me onsite to see the parents because of "biosecurity" reasons, which I was totally ok with, and am now questioning his real reasons). AFTER the transaction was complete, only then did he happen to mention that these birds hatched from PINK eggs! WHAT??!?!?!!! I know I should have asked ahead of time. I didn't say anything, after driving that far, they were fair priced, and my son instantly fell in love with the roo. So, my question is this.... Is it even worth it, or possible, to "breed out" the EE?? I would OBVIOUSLY only sell chicks as EEs for several generations from these lavs, but what I am wondering is if I put the lav girls with my black (TRUE Ameraucana) roo, and then from those chicks, only bred females that inherited the blue egg gene from daddy back to TRUE Ameraucanas, would I eventually end up with birds that breed true for the egg color? Would these birds eventually BE Ameraucanas, after generations of washing out the pink egg gene? Or will they FOREVER be EEs? Or, should I just be happy I have a cute little quad of lavenders, sell their chicks as only EEs and shut up about it?
