What do I have? (Pic Heavy)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

So, I'm wondering what I have? Going by what I have read,  I think I have Easter Eggers in the white birds.....and the reds are some sort of game hen? The white "easter egger" hen ( Lucy) lays very large greenish eggs. They are OMG so tasty.

Only one of the brown hens has laid an egg yet and it's small and off white. The people that I got them from said they were Giras(sp?) which I cannot find, and different variations of the word came up as some short of game hen?

 

And then there's Ricky. He does nothing but run his mouth and eat, and poop. :0)

You're right on your breeds. An Easter egger pair (male and female) and some game hens. There are so many strains of game birds, I don't keep up with the different types. If you want more specifics, you might try posting on the game bird thread, they can narrow things down.
