    They should lay green eggs. Their appearance is going to be influenced by both parents, so that will vary according to the genetic color of the Ameraucana and which gender parent of barred rock is used in the cross.

    If I breed a Ameraucana rooster to red Sussex hens, will their offspring lay colored eggs?

    green eggs if the ameraucana is purebred for blue egg shell.
