    What color eggs will the offspring of a pure ameraucana rooster crossed with RIR hens lay?

    They will lay light green eggs. A green egg is just a blue egg with a coating of brown "dye" on it. If you want really dark green eggs, get a couple marans and breed them with the ameraucana roo. Those eggs are so dark, chickens that lay them are called "oliver eggers."
