    What egg color would I get if I bred a pea combed blue egg layer (Easter egger) to a Marans rooster? Since it's a pea combed EE is it more likely to throw the blue egg gene giving me a nice olive egg result? Or is there still a chance offspring could lay just brown?

    My guess would be olive egg.
