We have an EE cockerel in with 7 hybrid layers. He has no problem fertilizing eggs and I thought rather than get hatchery stock hybrids to replace them, hatch some of his offspring. The hybrids are gold comets and black stars So 1. He has a pea comb which I kinda like in our cold winters, will that pass onto the offspring? Is it sex-linked? SInce the moms will have single combs, I was curious if it might be a sex-linked thing 2. WOuld it be possible for him to sire blue/green egg layers? 3. Laying ability? He's a hatchery EE from Townline so he is production bred. Hens lay well to. I understand that 2nd generation performance may not be consistent, but that's why we can cull. If i get 3-4 eggs a week from the female offspring, I'll be happy. I'll try to post a pic of him and the hens soon so we can start speculating on color. Thanks!
