    I crossed my EE in the first picture with what I thought it was a RIW but everyone on here told me no.

    Would it be a messed up chicken? I can't stop him, he likes her. [​IMG]

    Thanks, AMERAUCANA POLICE [​IMG] I may have to put some in the bator. I think they would be nice if they had some white in them.

    I had an EE roo that was similarly colored to yours - I bred him to a few "silver" colored EEs and got all brown ones. [​IMG] But they're fantastic layers!

    And it's possible that some of their daughters will lay colored eggs(green/blue) if he has the gene for that.

    Yeah, You would just get a mixed bag of colors. No telling what.
    I had a solid white EE and I hatched dozens of chicks from her and her assorted boyfriends. I never got another solid white one.
    that is the funs of EE's, you never know what your gonna get.

    When you say, you do not know what colors the roo is carrying, what do you mean. What colors are there for EE's?

    I don't know much about EE's, was just reading this, well cuz I may have an addiction to chickens... maybe.

    Anyway by colors he is carrying I think they mean like in his Genes.
