One of my RIR hens (left) Wheaten FM rooster(middle) and now laying black-tailed buff FM (right)

 

RIR egg on top, first BTB egg today on the bottom. I was expecting darker eggs and my Wheaten 'pullet' turned into a rooster. It took 4 more weeks for her to lay than our RIRs. She's a bit flightier than the RIRs and the lowest on the pecking order. I bought them from a breeder in Loxahatchee, FL. I'm considering hatching a few of her eggs (BTB/Wheaten cross) for our home flock.
