    I have some eggs due to hatch 4/9 that are. . .

    1. Blue Copper Marans Roo x Olive Egger (Blue Wheaten Ameraucana Roo x Black Copper Marans)
    2. Blue Copper Marans Roo x Black Copper Marans

    Will either of the offsprings be sex-link?

    What color eggs will the offspring hens have?

    Thank you.

    That was very scientific and although may be helpful to some more experienced in genetics, it just left me with a pain in the side of my head.

    Thank you for the link, but was way, way over my skill level.

    Maybe someone who understands genetics will be able to answer my original questions.

    sorry no sex links, you can expect Olive eggers with the Maran x Ameraucana cross
