Quote:You don't have to play devil's advocate to ask questions! Keep them coming if you have them. The pea comb and blue egg gene go hand in hand. Therefore it is most unlikely that a pure Ameraucana will lay a brown egg. The color of the egg is important, because it is a trademark of the breed. Muggs, there are breeds that have pea comb that lay brown eggs. If your bird lays a brown or green egg while the judge is judging they can be DQd. Yes...you are absolutely right! Brahmas are a good example of that. Pea combs and blue egg gene in Ameraucanas and EE's go hand in hand.
