Hi All, I've decided to start raising some EE's and Olive Eggers. I lucked upon what I thought was a young, white Ameracauna Roo, But after getting him home and really looking him over, I realized that he has several small, black/blue feathers mixed in. He was with another rooster who was blue, but at the time it didn't occur to me that he could be splash. I don 't have anyway to contact the old owner to confirm that he is or isn 't splash, so I'd like to test breed him . Now my understanding is, that since he is possible splash that when bred to a black hen he will produce a percentage of blue chicks. I have him in with two black Cochins, a black Australorp, and a home-bred EE (Sussex/EE). My plan is to hatch only the EE's eggs so that I am at least guaranteed a blue/green egg layer. (Plus I prefer to know exactly whose eggs are going in the incubator.) This hen is Silver-Laced Sussex over a Brown-Red EE hen, but is herself totally black. Will she still produce blue, or will there be red-leakage from Mom, or lacing from dad which overrides the blue gene?
