I have a chocolate orpington rooster. If I bred him to some ee's, what would they look like?I have a solid white, solid black and some multi colored ones. Would the eggs from the hens be brown or colored like the ee's?

You're going to get rainbow chicks, a variety of colors in plumage and egg color on the pullets. If your Ee lays blue eggs, her offspring here should lay some shade of green. If momma lays green, the pullets can lay green or brown.

I have a black rooster (which is half blue Orpington and half easter egger)

And a full splash Ameracauna.

Will their babies all be blue?

And how long before old roosters juice is gone and black rooster is in their for sure???
