    The offspring would likely lay green eggs of varying shades. Usually, when you cross a blue egg laying breed (like the Ameraucana) with a brown egg laying breed (such as Rhode Island Reds, ISA Browns, Light Brahmas, etc), you'll end up with a green egg.

    X 2 - but that is assuming that your bird is, indeed, an Ameraucana. Your other posts seem to indicate you have at least one other bird you believed to be an Ameraucana which is an EE - so if this bird is also an EE the genetics get a bit murkier with regards to offspring egg color, etc.

    When cross breeding like this will the offspring be good producers or am I better off buying new chickena?
