Rainbow layer grab bag IDs please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, got a shipment today that included some unidentified chicks, but the good news is that I have a list of the possibilities for you to pick from. These could be tufted pea-combed Olive Eggers of various colors, so we can assume that anything not fitting to any of the pure breeds could be an OE.

Okay, the possibilities other than OE are: blue copper or splash marans or white/blue/black/splash/wheaten Ameraucana

#1 is black on top with a yellow belly and a chocolate brown face





#2 is a beautiful chocolate brown all over





#3 is black with just a small dot of yellow on the neck


post #2 of 3

The second two look like Easter Eggers.

Ohhh! The one on the top (black back white underbelly) Looks just like one of the ones I picked up today (all were listed as EE pullets) I sure hope she's an Olive Egger, They were out of Cuckoo Marans by the time I got there and I was hoping that someday I could breed my own OE from one.
