Last year, we got our first chicks. Never thought about what kind they are. One rooster, and some hens. So then we incubated the eggs, and as the rooster is one type and the hens, each one different, does that make the eggs that just hatched, mutts?

I think mutts are better than pure breeds in ways. They all look different and they have their own personalities.

Here is a mutt question for you.

I have California Whites, which lay white eggs

I have a Buff Orpington Roo. Which the hens lay brown eggs

Say my roo mates with the cali white, and I hatch the egg. Now lets say its a pullet, when it finally lays eggs, what color would the eggs be?
