    Has anyone on here done a cross between a cream egg laying breed and a dark laying breed with red tones? (For example: Marans, Penedesenca, Welsummer, Croad Langshan, etc) I know there are many variations in the colors of the dark layers, so I'm specifically asking regarding the red toned eggs.

    Did it result in a pinkish or salmon egg layer, or was it just brown? TIA

    I have hen, whose mother is white Leghorn and Wellsummer father - she lays light cream eggs. Other hen which has Faverolle mother and Black Cooper Marans father - she lays darkish Brown eggs, but much lighter than Marans, maybe #3 on the Marans chart.
