    Hey, if I breed this guy with my EE girls, what will I get?

    Will those chicks carry the lethal gene [I *think* he's full bred Auracana, or close anyway]?

    Will I get cute chicks or freak chicks?

    Will his babies carry more of a blue egg gene? [he hatched out of a light bluish egg].

    Trying to decide whether to keep him or not, he's so cool but I really don't NEED another roo... what do y'all think?

    Thanks!

    I would imagine you would get all kinds of crazy colors. May I ask where you got him?

    I did end up giving him away today. It was very hard to do - *sniff sniff*. [​IMG] But we live in the 'burbs and I am already pushing my luck keeping the two big roos I already have.

    He is going to a great home though, so I feel good about that. [​IMG]

    Herechickchick, I got him in a batch of supposedly "Ameraucana" eggs I bought on eBay. [​IMG]

    Wow, neat cockerel, he's almost crele. Would have been worth working with I think!

    Neat coloring on the cockerel.

    Glad you found a good home for him.

    He went to live with another BYCer and I think she'll do great things with him. [​IMG]

    Thank you all for being supportive of my attachment to that boy! LOL! [​IMG]
