    If you breed a rumpless araucana to different hens--RI, BR, EE, SLW etc..will you get EE's????
     

  2. You should! The blue egg gene is dominant. If your hen is a white egg layer, pullets should lay blue/green eggs. If the hen is a brown egg layer, pullets should lay green eggs. You'll get olive eggs with a chocolate egger hen (marans, penedesenca, wellie)
