Thanks for all the help! I forgot to mention that 1 buff Orpington is coming in the order with the 2 easter eggers. Would they get along? And I will of course send pictures of them when they get here. Also will my full-grown chickens get along with them (2 RIRS and 1 BR)?
I wouldn't put the chicks with adults until they are at least 1/2 the sz of the adults. Not allot of adults will put up with a chick that don't belong to them. If you have a chick proof lg run, it might be ok to have them out with the adults during the warm part of the day but I wouldn't even do that if they are too young. How old of chicks are you getting?
once they get fully feathered and are old enough to be in the coop with the adults, you will see the normal " I'm the boss " battles, but that should be it. You shouldn't have any real problems mixing up the breeds that you keep in the same coop. Unless you try to put smaller breeds in with bigger breeds ... that don't always work out the best.
Yesterday, my fiancee found these in our coop. The usual three from our GCs and one small cream egg. We have two EEs that are close to laying and then two Cuckoo Marans and they are still too young. We think it was one of the EEs who has become very red in face lately. This is just the first egg. Her eggs can still be blue green right? My fiancee and I are worried that since it is not with the first one that she may not lay those based on this egg. Need advice!
Sorry hun but you got what ya got. They don't change colors, they can very in shade as they get older but the basic color will be the same.
Congrats!!!! always fun finding new eggs, especially blues, greens and pinks...
