    Quote:Well, he has no impact on his girlfriend's egg color. Are they siblings? What color are her legs? Where did your birds come from?

    Yeah A Barred Rock. The breed of roo you have with your hens has no effect on the color of eggs that the hens will lay. That depends on the hens parents, not her man. lol
