I wouldn't consider them a breed at all but that's my opinion.
but yeah... in the reefing hobby we get the same kind of people... they're just trying to make a name for themselves and are trying to get rich off of mutts and unwanted stuff...
That is absolutely not what Ray is trying to do. He has spent an enormous amount of time, money, and dedication to make this breed. As with any breed, there are those who do not like them and speak rudely of them. Please dont accuse people when you have no idea of who they are and what there motives are.
As for them not being a breed? Does laying any color of egg suddenly make a breed an Easter Egger? I think not. If any color of egg is allowed in the breed standard, then that breed can lay any color egg. If the breed standard says they can lay only white eggs, then that breed can only lay white eggs.
