Mutts?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I asked for 2 BLRW from a breeder who had beautiful ones and he grabbed 2 chicks from his brooder box along with 3 other breeds I'd asked for.  I'm so confused on all but my Buff Orp but one of these may head to a swap meet at TSC if it keeps making these weird honking/crowing noises.  They are 7 weeks old this weekend and like I said, supposed to be BLRW but looking at pictures I can't tell what they are anymore and if I go to the swap, I'd like to be a little less confused when trying to sell.  Also, could it be a pullet and roo or both pullets? 

Chick #1

Chick #2

They all appear to be Easter Eggers.

Do you think pullet and roo or both pullets? The last two are the same chick

They both look like pullets, but I'm not positive.  And they both look like EE.  Most of the time EE females will be a brown-ish color and the males will be lighter, sometimes barred or black and white and have red leakage on the shoulders.  I'm not sure if this is correct but I read it on a thread on here(BYC), so yeah....

Those combs are starting to pink up and they are only 7 weeks old. They are both cockerels.

I had a beautiful black and white EE but as soon as it started crowing 6 weeks, I gave it to a lady who had a farm. I have another Black and white that a breeder told me was a pullet last week. Now I'm really confused.

Easter Eggers can be any color/pattern. Both males and females can be black and white or golden/red.

EE's are mutts. That's why there is a wide array of color to them. All an EE has to have is blue egg gene. With only one that means eggs can be green or blue and sometimes they still lay a brown egg. EE's are not a pure breed so there is a lot of color variation.
