I just hatched some Olive Eggers (Ameraucana x Marans, variety of generations and back crosses) and don't have any interest in keeping ones who will end up laying brown eggs. I read that in Ameraucana based Olive Eggers, if they have a pea comb then they also have the blue egg gene. Is this true 100% of the time? I wouldn't want to prematurely get rid of anyone based on comb type!
