Hi everyone! So as of recently, I have an aracauna hen thats decided to go broody. She HAS successfully sat,hatched and raised chicks before, so I have faith in her! Anyway! She currently has 3 beautiful blue eggs and 1 (stolen) brown egg she's warming. And it got me thinking! If you have a hen that lays blue eggs, and its bred to a (believed to be) Australorp rooster. What kind of chicks might this produce? Ultimately I'm wondering If she produces some female chicks, would they lay brown or blue eggs? I doubt I'll get a definite answer but the idea is interesting I think. thanks for any opinions in advance!
