I love my EE girls for all the eggs they lay, rain or shine, cold or hot and I want to keep raising some so that I always have good egg production from them. My question is does a EE hen + ? rooster = EE chick? (Sorry, that looks a lot like algebra.) But, could I have, for example, a buff orp rooster breed with EE hens and still get EE offspring? Do I specifically need a EE roo? I mean, if they are mixes anyway, what roo can I "mix" in that will still give me some consistency. Thanks!
