    What color eggs would I get if I crossed a mutt roo with white ear lobes(la fleche/delaware) to an EE hen who lays green eggs? Would the offspring lay white eggs or some light green?

    Light green and light brown, possibly even normal green or normal brown.

    Thank you!
    The roo has a single/v comb, EE a pea comb. Would they be single and pea combed chicks? With the pea combed chicks being the ones most likely to have the green eggs?

    My straight/pea comb crosses have come out with a funky kinda comb, not really pea cause it's bigger and odd shaped. I don't think there's a name for it. I don't think you'd get any straight comb birds. But I'll bet you'll get some pretty colored birds!
