    I ended up with a rooster in this spring's batch of new chicks. Does anyone know what color egg I'll get if I breed him to RIR or Ameracaunas?

    Assuming they are pure Ameraucana's, you would get olive eggers. Crosses that lay a light olive green egg. To darken the color more, breed those offspring back to the welsummer rooster.
