    I am wanting to breed him with these 2 new hens, am am curious if they will keep their RICH dark color or if some Americauna coloring will pop up genetically. Do you think it is worth it? Im hoping since they are all HUGE birds that they will make big offspring, and im partial to the muff on the rooster. hoiping that will come out also.... Info please. Thanks

    Just Curious .. what color eggs are they laying? did the blue gene and the brown gene make a olive egg? New to this and was thinking about crossing my Americauna Roo with my bared or Rhode hen something brown to see if it would make a olive color egg. I am VERY new to the whole cross breed thing.
