    I have Americauna hens and rooster. As well as Dominicker hens. I have decided to start incubating and was wondering would they be a mix breed or Americauna, as the rooster fertilizes the egg. I am curious as to what the biddies may lay themselves when grown

    Welcome to BYC
    Photos of your birds will help as it is possible (likely) that you actually have Eater Eggers rather than true Ameraucana (they are often misrepresented as such). Any chicks from your Dominicker hens would be mixed breed as it isn't just about who fertilizes the eggs but also the breed that produces the eggs. If your Americauna are actually Easter Egger, those chicks, too, would be mixed breed as Easter Eggers are considered a mixed breed bird.
