Hi and - glad that you could join us.
The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
If you got your birds from a feed store, they will be Easter eggers regardless of what they call them. Easter eggers are a mixed breed , very popular and generally lay pastel egg pink, tan or green (hence their name).
If you're going to keep a rooster, I'd encourage you to get more hens. The recommended ratio is 1 rooster to 10 hens, otherwise, the hen may be over-bred and injuries occur.
Thanks for joining us!
