I hatched some EE's last year from a black/white/gold mixed roo over one white EE, one wild-type colored EE, and one brown/blue EE. From that group I have gotten 3 solid white birds. 1 solid white EE hen-lays pink eggs and 2 solid white EE roos. The other EE's from that group all lay blue eggs. Here's the question: Is there any way to tell what the roos are carrying as far as blue egg genes? Since the hen isn't laying blue eggs, I am assuming that she cannot pass on any blue egg traits. What about the roos? It is my understanding that roos carry the egg color genes, so what might the white EE roos be carrying?
