    Does anyone know what color egg you would get if you crossbred a brown egg layer to a blue egg layer. Would the color of the eggs be embetween or would i have a 50/50 chance.

    They most likely will be green colored eggs. Though the color could very from blue to green.
    Crossing to a white egg layer would most likely help maintain the blue, but could be a lighter blue.

    with my crosses of a pure araucana roo to silkie and polish hens, I have come out with mostly nicely colored blue eggs. But a few silkies did still lay the light cream color that a pure silkie would lay. Now when I compared the blue eggs to my moms true araucana hens eggs, mine were bluer in color than hers
