Last year we hatched out two eggs from a Marans hen and two roosters. One was our EE and the other was our Speckled Sussex. I had hoped for pullets, but with my luck both are roosters. The SSXMarans roos is really sweet and all, but I don't need him. So I will have to find him a home. Now the EEXMarans roos is turning out interesting to me. Seeing as EE's are mutts anyhow, would putting that crossed rooster in the herd turn out some interesting birds for us? He is a green legged, pea comb, and cuckoo patterned guy. I was thinking that the cuckoo pattern would be interesting, but do not want to turn the entire herd into cuckoos. LOL So to speak. So those of you experienced in the EE's, what do you think?
