    Lately I've noticed my Cochin rooster flirting with several of my EE hens and I got to wondering if any chicks from this cross would lay blue/green eggs? Thank yall for any help!

    If the EE hens are laying blue or green eggs, their daughters from this cross may very well lay an olive colored egg - assuming that the rooster's activities go beyond flirting.
