I have 4 hens and 1 roo that are a "special black" from Sunnyside Hatchery in WI (a Rhode Island Red/Barred Rock mix from what I can tell). I just got 3 EEs and 2 Anconas. So my question is this... What will I get if I hatch eggs from the EEs or the Anconas? Will the EEs retain the colored egg gene and the Anconas the white egg gene? I'm not looking to breed or sell specific breeds or anything, just curious on what will happen if one of our ladies goes broody That is my ultimate hope of course, that one of our ladies will hatch some babies for our next additions Thanks!
