I am wanting to get a rooster so I can hatch some baby chicks this spring. I want to get one that will make some cool crosses with my hens. The hen breeds I have are: EE's, Lavender Orps, Australorps, and Sex Links black & red. The rooster breeds I am looking into buying that are close to where I live are Buff Orp, white Ameraucana or EE (not sure which), or cuckoo marans. If I got the cuckoo marans and crossed it with my EE's that lay blue eggs, would that make a possible olive egg layer?? Overall, I'm wanting to make crosses that will be pretty and unique in color or lay different colored eggs.
