If you breed an Ameraucana rooster back to EE hens, is it possible to get hens that lay blue eggs?
Granted that the Easter Egger lays or carries the genes for blue or green eggs instead of brown, yes.
Yes, I hatched an egg from that same cross and the chick now is grown and lays blue eggs. Her sister on the other hand, lays green eggs.
So if the ee hen lays brownish eggs and is crossed with that Americauna rooster, her kids should lay blue eggs?
Sorry, my mind's a bit fuzzy.
Quote:then you would get green eggs, green eggs are blue eggs with brown coating.
