He's an Ameracauna. She's an EE. I've got some EEs that lay blue eggs, some green eggs, but only one that lays pink eggs. Someone wants to buy only pinks - and I was wondering if that color would be passed along. Thanks for any help!

If your EE lays pink eggs, will her chicks also carry the gene that makes pink eggs?

I am guessing that it would be a combination of genes which are causing the pink eggs. What type of comb does she have?

A couple of things which might help produce more pink egg layers. You could try keeping two or three of her male offspring & breed them back to her. Or you might try breeding her with a male from a white or cream egg layer & see how her female offspring lay.​
