    I have a pair of White OEGBs right now and i'd like to make it a trio. My question is what should the other hen be? (Besides white) I know some times if you breed two diffrent verietys together and then you breed the offspring, they won't breed true. Genetic wise is there another color/patterned hen i could put under my white roo that would produce offspring that would breed ture?

    I hope im making sense.

    You'd get Red Pyles not Red Plys & yes they breed true.
