    Hi Everyone,

    We have a White Leghorn/Americauna rooster and 2 RIRS, 2 Red Sex Links and 2 either americaunas or wellsummers (we aren't sure.) What color eggs can we expect? Thanks!

    I may sound silly asking this, but are you asking what color the eggs from chicks hatched out of your flock would be, or what colors you'll get from your existing hens? [​IMG]

    Having a rooster in the flock does not change the color egg that a hen lays...
    He will, however, contribute genes for eggshell color to his offspring.
