    Hi, I know there are a lot of you knowledgeable about genetics!

    We have a barnyard mutt rooster. He hatched from a blue egg and has green legs, so Easter Egger. He is frizzled, which my kids think is very cool.

    He's the only rooster on the farm right now and we're hatching some eggs we hope he's fertilized. The eggs we are incubating are blue, cream, and dark brown.

    So my kids and I are trying to figure out our chances of getting a frizzle that lays colored eggs, this is a great science experiment!

    Does anyone tell me how to figure out my chances of getting a frizzled easter egger?
