    I'm going for a rainbow egg flock. I've got easter eggers (were supposed to be amereucana, but well you know...), welsummers, and barred rocks. So that's blue, dark brown, and brown. I'm planning on breeding my welsummer roo to an easter egger for olive eggs. I don't care for white, I can get those at the store.

    So, what else do I need? [​IMG]

    You need a BO for yellow and a Tetra tint for white. They both lay light brown eggs. [​IMG]

    OOOPs I misunderstood I thought you were talking about chicken color. Your looking to make an Easter Basket.

    BR eggs always look pink to me. We've got 2 Silkies laying a deep orange cream shade that were a total surprise. Not sure of any breeds that's normal out of though.
