    What would I get? Could I get Easter eggers? Or would I need to breed ee with ee to do that? My kids love the colored eggs so want to hatch some of our own this time and keep them. But only roosters I have are buff silky and blue Orpington. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure an easter egger crossed with a brown layer would make an easter egger, not sure.

    Yeah I've been trying to read to research and it seems so. Except they will lay green eggs instead of blue bc blue mixed with brown will make green? Could be wrong but that's what I'm understanding

    I think blue and brown makes green.
