title says it all
Show us the pictures.
Wheaten cock(gold) x BR hen(silver)&(barred)= sex-linkable by color at hatch
Americauna(blue egg gene) x BR(brown egg gene)= olive eggs
cool thanks. i may try that this spring
You get olive eggs by crossing a blue/green egg layer with a dark brown egg layer (Marans, Welsummer, etc.)
Barred Rocks typically lay a lighter, normal colored brown egg.
Your resulting chicks will probably lay a minty green colored egg, not necessarily olive.
If you want to increase your chance of green eggs only keep the resulting chicks with pea combs, cull any with single combs.
As said, you won't get Olive Eggers, that requires a dark brown layer not any brown layer (that just makes typical EE's)
But yes, they will be sex-linked.
i was more curious to see if they'd be sex-linked. egg color doesn't matter so much thanks for the info!
