    Would she be a sex link easter egger

    Her father is araucana which lays blue eggs
    Mother lays brown
    What color will she lay
    How old will she lay at

    A good guess is that she will lay green eggs--both the blue and brown laying traits are somewhat dominant (it's complicated). Does she have a pea or single comb?
