    With a BR hen, you would get barred males and solid colored females. With a BR rooster over Ameraucana or EE, you would get barred Easter Eggers. I have a bunch of them now, two blue barred and three black barred.

    I had two pullets who were EE roo over BR hen. They had lots of spangling in the chest and wings. Here is Iris:
