I crossed an Araucana roo with any of the following: Barred Rocks Buff Orpingtons Golden Sexlinks Light Brahma's What I'd like to know is, if I cross an Araucana roo with any of these breeds, would the eggs the resulting hens lay be brown or of the easter egg variety? There's a very handsome 5 month old Araucana roo up for adoption about 2 hours south of me...and I'm just kind of kicking this notion around in my head. I've been wanting to add a roo to the flock, as well as EE's. If the crossing of an Araucana roo with the above mentioned breeds would result in future EE laying hens, that would be a definite bonus. So, your thoughts? I'd really love to hear from those of you who have a good working knowledge of what begets what in the chicken world!
