    I recently hatched 5 olive egger chicks. I am hoping for more pullets but at least a 50/50 shot of cocks/hens. My question is what should the roos genetics be in terms of egg color passed down through mating with a hen. Can I mate a OE roo with an Ameraucana hen and still get Olive colored eggs? Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.
