    We've got some really pretty EEs out of this last batch but this one confuses me. Is this blue lacing? I know that EEs are basically pretty mutts but how would they come up with blue and will she pass this on when bred?

    I don't have an answer for you but a picture would help someone answer.

    I don't know, but she's gorgeous. Whether she'll pass it on depends on who you breed her with. Blues are tricky [​IMG] I don't know the particulars, someone else can help you much more.

    I'm not sure if she will either. I have a hen who looks like her, but we haven't bred her yet. A lot of the time black over rides blue. If you had a blue roo there could be a chance. I'd like to know what her coloring is called.

    Quote:THAT'S what I need!!! A BLUE EE roo!!!! Oh, that would be so cool. I have an EE roo with some pretty colors but he's definitely not blue then there's a half breed EE roo from my pretty roo and his Hamburg lady friend. He's sort of a mottled white and black. Yep, gotta get me a blue roo.
