    Hi,
    I was wondering what color eggs would you expect to get from a barred rock/araucuna mix. Does matter which parent is the araucuna? And would you call such a cross an easter egger? I couldnt find answers using the search but am curious about the genetics of egg color. Thanks

    Yes, it would be an easter egger, and it would lay green eggs (with an occasional brown, blue, or white)
