    this might sound silly but here is the scoop, I ordered 24 blue americana chicks from this site last spring, and I was so excited I coulodnt stand it but as they grow older I am finding that I bought EE's well, I recently bought three pure white verry good quality roos, one might be a pullet, but my question is if I get some good quality black, blue and maybe splash, Am's and cross some of the whith the white what will be my chances of getting more whites?

    i think it depends if the white is resessive or dominant. That will factor the color of your Ameraucanas.

    Ameraucana that have dominant white will have lighter legs than whites with recessive white only.

    Cross the white with black blue or splash. The offspring will be black or blue. Then back cross the offspring to one of the parents to get more white, black and blue.
