All white chicken, brown eggs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was given a couple of poulets, now laying hens. they are all white with red combs, red ears, yellow feet. They lay brown eggs frequently (almost daily). 

 I am wondering what this is. She was bred with a light sussex male and we have hatched chicks. i'm excited about seeing how they turn out. i'd love to know what she is...

this picture is from when she was younger, she is a bit bigger now.  i was told she was an 'easter egger', which i can't seem to pin down... and the eggs were brown, i thought easter eggers laid blue, green or pink eggs? am i wrong? i have wondered if she is a white rock...?

Can you get a pic with the bird(s) standing on their own? I am on my phone and cant tell the comb type but if it is a single comb and they dont have beards i would bet they are white rocks

As for EE's they are any bird that carries/possesses the blue egg gene. The can be any color, have any body type, have any comb, any color legs, and lay any color egg

Look up white rocks and see if those are your bird.
