    Has anyone here crossed a Lacy roundhead roo with EE hens? If so, can you post pics of the offsprings? Also, I'm curios to know what color eggs would the new hens lay?? I just gave my broody silkie 6 eggs to sit on, which came from my neighbor. All the eggs are different shades of green from EE hens that came from Ideal Hatchery. The roo is a Lacy roundhead.

    The birds will look much like Easter Eggers, the color even being the same, except they'll be more skinny in body and have larger tails. Their egg color depends on the EE parents'. If the EE lays green eggs, the offspring will likely lay pale greenish brown, verging on pale brown. If the EE's lay blue eggs, the offspring will lay pale green eggs.
