    Okay, I am not really keen on researching this for myself [​IMG] , but I know that some of you can answer this for me!

    I have a White Plymouth Rock roo. What would his offspring look like if he was bred with a Barred Plymouth Rock? What about a Golden Comet?

    Also, if he was bred with my Easter Eggers who lay blue and green eggs, what color eggs would we get?

    Just wondering!

    Hi Littlelemon, I am not sure about your white plymoth rock, but last year I crossed a Columbian Rock hen with an Easter Egger roo and the hens were beautiful, they look like the columbian with the ear muffs and beard of the easter egger, she lays brown eggs. I think anything with brown eggs is dominant? But I also have a leghorn crossed with an easter egger and she too has the look of a leghorn with muffs. She lays wonderful sky blue eggs. I also crossed a Barred Plymouth Rock roo with some columbian rock hens and they look like the barred rocks, larger in size with dark grey where the black barrs are on a plymouth rock.
