    You'll get sexlinked birds, probably, with males barred and females basically black with gold/straw color leaking in the hackle area. You may get EEs from EE with any other breed, just different EEs.
    I mated my Blue Ameraucana hen with one of the Barred Rock roosters and got Panda, who lays green eggs.

    LOL I thought maybe you get Gerbils... LOL But kittens would be cuter [​IMG] Though harder to fit in the egg [​IMG]

    edited to add something useful [​IMG]


    Use the 'show examples' button and then 'calculate crossing'

    kittens is my standard question/answer when presented with something pregnant. My wife got really mad when I told her I hoped our second kid was a calico! I always ask friends thatif they have kittens I want a calico one.

    Glad to see some one else is sick like me...yes I need sleep...it is finals time and I make tests or am taking tests! Teacher by day graduate student by night!
