    I have brown egg laying hens. i have an aracauna rooster. what is the probability that pullets from this cross will lay colored eggs? further more if you set a colored egg will the pullet from that lay the same color egg? is this all blue eyes, green eyes, brown eyes genetics or is there is a set possibility? will i be waiting for my second gerenration to be crossed with an aracauna before i will see any results in egg color?

    Most likely, any resulting hens will lay brown or greenish eggs.
