Okay so to get f1 olive Eggers we breed copper Maran to Ameracuana hens. You then take those f1 chicks(who lay deep olive eggs)and breed them back to a copper Maran again for even darker olive! This gets you f2 chicks. (Basically 3/4 Maran) Has anyone taken these f2 chicks and breed to copper Maran again for f3 chicks. So my question really is though I don't think these f3 will lay much darker olive when point of lay. I would guess way higher percentage of chocolate eggs again? Does anyone breed to get f3 chicks and seen them lay and what color percentage eggs?
