Currently I've got 5 hens as follows: Barred Rock, Marans/Barred Rock, Australorpe, Silver Laced Wyandotte and a Golden Laced Wyandotte. I've got a friend who's offered me a rooster, she thinks he's half Ameraucana (sp?) and half Plymouth Rock. My question is would he pass on the green egg gene or not after being bred with my brown egg girls? We are a small hobby farm and I am hoping to raise our own meat birds while keeping some layers as we do sell eggs. Now a few of my girls have never had a rooster with them are there any steps that I should take to introduce them? My Golden I just got a few weeks ago and she isn't totally settled in with all the girls yet, should I be wary bringing in a roo?
