    If a hen lays a certain color egg will her female offspring lay the same color egg; or different color? I am asking because I bought some Easter Egger eggs and one color of egg that I really like are not developing.. so I was wondering if the other eggs may produce this color egg? TIA

    Both parents contribute genes for egg color.
