    When hatching them, will the chick ( if female of course) lay the same colored egg as hatched out of when mature??

    If the rooster came from a blue egg also, then yes.

    Doesn't the egg color go slightly along with the ear color of the layer?

    I'm glad you asked. I was just wondering the same thing a couple days ago. I'lll keep watching to see what is said. i've got 6 eggs waiting for my power to be back before they are shipped. I ordered them the day the storm came and today is day 5 with no power.

    Quote:Something inbetween from what I gather.

    Blue X Brown... green
    Blue X white... light blue or off white
    Blue X Dark Brown... olive

    perhaps someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Quote:Probably a green egg. My Araucana cross (turns out it is a mix because the breeder lied to me but that's another story) I hatched from a pretty blue egg but she lays a green egg. I love her anyways but am disappointed I was lied to. She has no tail and tufts of an Araucana but is not an approved color to show and then the fact she lays the wrong color egg.
