    Ok I gave my friend a few birds a while back-straight run. Tonight she is coming back over to drop off a rbird that turned out to be a roo-he is a gorgeous EE. Now if I let him breed my Bo's and C queens-what would the offspring look like-they would all be the standard size bird but will the offspring pullets throw off the colored eggs too? Instead of the brown eggs? anyone have pictures???

    You should get green and olive eggs, but may get brown eggs, too. I crossed a frizzled EE to my BR once and got a frizzled sex-link that lays brown eggs. [​IMG]

    Get him a welsummer, maran, or penedesenca girlfriend- and you'll get really dark olive egger chicks. I'm sure there are a few more dark layers that would work too.
