My mother in law has a Aracana/road island red cross rooster. I was told that if you have Americana or auracana in the blood line you will always get blue or green colored eggs, is this true? What if I bred him to our austrolorp or barred rock hens what are the chances of getting chicks from them that could produce blue or green eggs? Or if I bred him to our auracana hens? Thank you

I don't think it will be "always". Maybe sometimes. You'll come closer to gettin the blue/green egg breeding back to the Araucana or an Ameraucana. I use Easter Eggers in my blue/green egg crosses, I've gotten a couple of hens that laid brownish colored eggs, but most go back to the blue/green eggs/
