Hello 👋!

So we have a Cream crested legbar cockerel and various breeds of hens and am very interested to know from you knowledgeable folks what coloured eggs the offspring of these combinations would make please and if they have a name?

CCL x Welsummer
CCL x Cheshire brown
CCL x Bluebell
CCL x White star
CCL x Lavender mottled leghorn
CCL x Warren
CCL x Scots grey
CCL x Cooper black maran

Thankyou in advance 😊

hello @Roscipoo - welcome to BYC :frow

If your CCL cock is pure bred, he will be carrying 2 copies of the blue eggshell gene. Combined with brown will give shades of green, from olive when mixed with dark brown (e.g. from a welsummer or marans), to moss with a light brown (e.g. warren). Combined with white/ offwhite (e.g. from a leghorn) will give lighter blues. There are no standardized names for these shades, but olive is commonly used.
