    If I cross the two....
    Would I get a sex-link easter egger? If so, how can you tell the sex?
    Would they lay bigger eggs than an Americauna?
    Would they lay more frequently than an Americauna?
    Does anyone have these crosses and can you post pics?
    Thanks!!!

    The offspring would not be sex-linked (unless you are crossing the appropriate colors; barred to non-barred, or white to another color). I would think they would lay better than the Ameraucana, and could lay bigger, if the Isa lays a bigger egg than your Ameraucana hatched from.

    Would they be green/blue layers?
