Genetic question- AMERAUCANA colors

What do you get mixing Buff with blue? Or buff with red browns?

I have too many roos. I hate this part of hatching, etc. So tomorrow some cockerals are heading to auction.

Is there anything neat that can come from keeping a buff Ameraucana cockerel for my EE flock? I have no buff pullets to go with him/ I have a wheaten ameraucana and a blue roo for the EE flock, but these guys have all get along pretty well together, so perhaps I can get by with 3 roos. I will keep him if he might make something pretty.

Thoughts on what buff can create?

I have some really pretty 'lemon blue' EEs, and 'blue/wheaten ish' EEs as well as red brown EEs.

how many EE hens do you have? That sounds good the mixes with the EE's will just be really pretty purer EE's that probably lay a nicer egg color.

Hi there,

When I mix varieties of any breed, I always get huge variations in color & color combinations in the offspring. I don't think the results would be predictable with any amount of accuracy. But there's ALWAYS the possibility of getting some really gorgeous mixed-variety birds!
Danke, Doc! This chart is great and I have not seen it before. Okay, I will keep one of the buff cocks too.

Henry, I have 7 EE pullets and some blue and black Ameraucana pullets. I also have 2 black Ameraucana cockerals.

Anne, you are right. Who cares what I get. They'll be beautiful.

I just HATE the plight of roosters. I have lots......and I love them.

Thanks very much.

Buff on blue = blue and black leaking non black or non blue

buff on red brown will produce a light colored (not the black) red brown
