    Thank you. I figured it is but had my fingers crossed it was a pullet. Will his chicks have colored eggs?

    Depends on if he passes on a blue egg gene and if the hen who is the mother has a blue egg gene to pass on. If he has a blue egg gene and you breed him with a brown egg laying hen, his daughters, if they inherit his pea comb, could possibly lay green, but they will not lay blue.
