    Will all the chicks be barred or will I get a range of colors with barring? Just curious
    Thanks

    You should probably get a little variety in coloring but since your roo is a cross he would be Het. barred and so half of the offspring would have barring as well.

    Thanks for the replies. Just wondering what to expect,since he is cross and not pure for barring and the hens are easter eggers. 1 hen resembles a red pyle w/beard,2 are silver dun/fawn and 1 is a red fawn. Eggs will be going in the incubator sometime this week. Later on if I can learn to post pics I will do so. I have eggs hatching now from the same hens bred by a black ameracauna rooster that is from lavender ameraucana breeding,given to me by a byc member.
    Thanks

    Thanks Clint
    They may not,but they sure look it. They could be blue? I've had the chocolate o.e.(dun) and the chocolate polish(dun) and the color looks the same. I hatched a chick from one of the silver fawn ee hens bred to a buff orp.Xpolish cross and the chick had lavender stripes.
