    Quote:I'll know in about a year. I have some sexlink crosses with White Rock that are mostly white with a liittle ress on them and I have a Easter Egger rooster in with them. He is Red-White-and-Blue. I'm going to hatch some eggs in Feb. or Marh and then when they start laying I'll see if the green egg gene is past down to them. I'm actually hoping that it isn't.

    Just look for the pea comb in those chicks from that hatchng in Feb/March...If they have them ...they "should" be laying colored eggs..Now there is a 3% chance of genetics going awry...but you'll know ASAP when they hatch..pea combs..
