    I have a welsummer roo and aricauna hens.... do you think their offspring will lay green or brown eggs? Do you think they will have the tufted faces of the aricauna? Anyone have any welsummer-aricauna mixed chickens?

    Quote:You're lucky! Have you ever heard of Olive Eggers? They are the result of mixing a blue egg layer and a dark brown egg layer. They make an olive (army green) colored egg. If you do a search on Olive eggers, you can find some pictures of their eggs. I don't know what the chicks will look like (although I do know that you want the pea combed ones for the olive eggs), but I'm jealous of the eggs you'll get!
