    Does anyone have any idea what color eggs an Araucana/Australorp cross hen might lay?

    Green, that's IF you actually have Araucanas, not Easter Eggers. If they're Easter Egger x Australorp, then the eggs will range from pale olive green to brown.

    Agreed. If they were actually araucanas you will get green eggs from that mix. Blue egg layer + brown egg layer = green egg layer
