    I'm curious what I will have. I didn't expect to have two broody hens. Those hens hatched 13 of 14 unexpected blue, splash, black, Americana. I guess my biggest question is what color will my Americana lay? Thank you!

    If it will be an Ameraucana mix (EE), then it will lay blue/green eggs.

    Then they have a chance of laying green/blue eggs, but others could lay brown.

    It really is the coolest looking chick
    I've seen. When momma hen lets me see her again I will upload a photo. She's a rainbow. Thanks for your help!
