    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this! It looks like my one EE is a roo. If we keep him and let chicks happen what do you think we will end up? My hens are a brown egg layer mix - Barred Rocks, Partridge Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds and Black Stars.

    Could be anything but chances are good for olive eggers or khaki eggers.

    Do you think we might end up with any colorful egg layers?

    As I said, their eggs will either be brown, khaki or olive. The father being the green egg breed makes color more likely.
