The title says it all. I want olive eggers and have barred hens and ee roos & hens.
Quote:just cross the ee roo over the barred hens... Only the Boys will be Barred(B/b+ heterozygous barred anyways, use ONLY the pea combed ones) use these boys on your EE hens.... 50% of the hens will be barred and 50% of the Boys will be barred.
at this stage I will recommend to use the Best barred hens that lay the darkest olive eggs. use the best Barred rooster of your first cross over them(barred olive eggers)
to make a barred olive egger you cross a cuckoo maran and a americauna/EE.
Quote:that's also true.. but she wants to work with what she got..
But with Barred Rock hens, you would likely just get a green egger, you need to add the dark brown egg color from marans. PM onthespot, she breeds Barred Olive Eggers.
