If I have EE's, what makes more EE's? Do you breed ee to ee, or what if you breed an ee to an Ameraucana?

You'll get either greener or bluer eggs if you get an Aruacana roo (rumpless purebred) to breed over your EE hens.

ETA( And you'll still get EE's!)

If you breed EE x EE then you don't know what color egg the offspring will produce. If you breed to a Ameraucana then you should improve the resultant EE egg color(I think
)

Quote:Breeding an EE to an EE ie mutt to mutt you still will have a mutt, which may or may not lay green blue pink brown tan, orange(ok maybe not orange), may have muffs, may have a peacomb may have a.......................

in other words, you can breed whatever you want to it and still call it an EE since there is no STANDARD for an EE who can argue with you.

You breed an EE to an EE and you have a purebred EE
. No telling what colors they'll turn out, because their progenitors could have been any colors, but they should be beautiful.

I guess what I want to know is if you have a salmon colored EE, how would you get offspring that are the same color?
