I used to think I was smart... Then I decided to try to get into chicken genetics... And I failed chemistry in college... so keep this in mind.. I was an English major Sooo... When one puts a type of rooster over a type of hen what determines what you get? IE.. if your goal is an Easter Egger what rooster over what hen? If your goal is an OLIVE Egger what roo over what hen? Here’s why... For roosters I have: cream legbar, BBS ameracauna, white ameracauna, wheaten ameraucana, bbs marans, and birchen marans For hens I have each of those PLUS welsummer. I am also still trying to figure out the color genetics, but the breeder of the birchen sent me all sorts of photos and help to sort through and cull/decide which to breed or just keep for eggs, etc. Thank you for helping me get through being an idiot.
