Im new to all this. We have 4 Black Copper Marans (eggs are generally 2-3 on maran scale though), 5 Plymouth Barred Rocks, and 3 Golden Comets. We just got an Ameracauna rooster, although ive read he is probably an EE. Would any of those combos with our roo result in Olive Eggers? Or just the Roo and BCMs?

Only the BCMs and the EE rooster will result in Olive Eggers (the other hens do not lay a dark enough shade of brown) and then only if the EE roo passes off his blue egg gene to the offspring. If he passes off his brown egg gene to the offspring, you will just get brown egg layers.
