    The Ameraucana. (which, looking at your other breeds, I'm guessing you actually have an EE, not an Ameraucana)

    If it is the common, pretty EE color of white, black, and possibly some other colors - It will throw some colorful chicks.

    If it has a nice pea comb, it will throw offspring who will lay green eggs. [​IMG]


    The others will just make your common mutt.

    Here are some of my EE/BR (EE mom/BR dad) crosses to give you an idea what they will look like (or similar to) ,BR roosters pass barring to all offspring:
