I have ONE, Yes ONE, and only ONE EE hen. No EE roo's. I would like to know if there is a "chance" that any of her offspring might lay colored eggs. I have Roosters: RIR, Seabright, Dutch Bantum, and "possibly" a Partridge Cochin. And do rooster have more genetic influence on prodginy then hens?

I'd say its a 50/50 proposition.

If you have a blue egg layer and cross her with a RIR, the pullets that are produced will lay greenish to brown eggs.
