It does stand out, don't it? Wait until they lighten up and start looking like Barred Rocks. They really stand out from the pullets then. :)

Mine weren't very tame at first, but they have gotten a lot better. They are very active and seem to be all over the coop floor at once.

Yes, if you have Rees line you will probably have Mint Green... but I really curious on how you got the conclusion that a large percentage of US stock is laying more mint green that blue? -- any facts basis you can share that support the idea? (Hope it isn't the case naturally).
Thankfully, mine came from very pretty blue eggs. I wish I had taken a pic of the egg the breeder showed me, but it was definitely blue. I've got another 4 months or so before mine will be laying.
