    I just put some pretty blue-green EE eggs in the incubator (just filling up the extra spaces after I loaded bought eggs). The roo in the pen with the EE hens is a beautiful BLRW roo. Any ideas as to what chicks from these eggs might look like (if, of course, all goes well and they hatch ok)?? [​IMG]

    Depends on the colors of the hens, but I think you will be getting at least some blue and blue laced birds.

    If the EE hens are the typical duckwing color, you're going to get some blue spangled and partially laced brown EE's. They'll be a little patchy looking in patterns.

    The EE hens are: one mostly black with penciled feathers, one blue, and one mostly gold toned feathers.
