My next door neighbors have a Black Australorps x BR roo they hatched last year, he is now mature and stuff, They also have some EE from Mcmurray, i was wondering what kind of eggs the offpring of the rooster bred to the EE would produce?

If the EE's are laying blue or green eggs, then the offspring would lay either green, blue, or brown eggs. Just depends on which genes they inherit. If you get to select the pullets, pick the ones with a pea comb. The blue/green genes seem to follow the pea comb. No guarantees, just helps your odds.

The offspring will probably be mostly black or barred, could be either, but other colors could leak through.

What would happen if the Roo was bred to a White crested Black polish? as far as color of the chicken.
