What breed is the white/cream egg??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a flock of all cinnamon queen chickens which lay a medium color brown egg... I just added 3 new hens... all of which are solid black.. let me start off by saying the lady I got them from said they were black Marans... hmmm well the evidence says otherwise... .. Chicken #1 is a large solid black hen with green/purple sheen in the sun... ( I believe she is a Australorp)  Chicken # 2 is also solid black(with purply sheen) with copper in her feathers around her head and Chicken #3 looks just like #2 only she has feathered feet.  #2 and # 3 are 3/4 the size of chicken #1.. I will try to get pictures of them and post to another feed.... but I got eggs from two of them yesterday and to my surprise someone laid a white/cream egg... I think the light brown is from the Australorp... but white.and its much smaller... one of the little ones has to be a mut to make a white egg....??

Chicken #1, she is the largest, and I believe her to be an Australorp??  the picture doesn't really show the greenish sheen to her feathers.

Chicken #2.  This one is smaller then #1, but she also had green sheen to her feathers... but has copper around her neck... possibly a copper maran cross? or a black sex link?  or just a mut??

Black sex links lay large dark brown eggs, but since they are crosses, it varies

And Chicken #3.. She is small, with green sheen to her feathers, and she has feathered feet, very sweet girl...  I think it may be her that is laying the little white/cream egg, as she seem to have some bleaching on her face??

 

 

 

Not sure what the black spots are on her wattles???
