Thank you for your response. I thought I replied but it didn't show up. I'll refer to them as barnyard mix or EE mix. My red-head and my Boo (splashy white) are my favorites. I'm a bit biased based because I think they're pullets.

I'd call them barnyard mix. If you're advertising them to sell, they're barnyard mix with the potential to lay brown or green eggs.

Follow up for the fun of it.

The two pullets ended up laying brown eggs.  

This one lays speckled brown eggs. The red faded on Reddy, but her chest gained some salmon coloring.

From this at 2 months old ^.

To this at 6 months old.

She's my best layer.  Two days off since she started laying on September 1st.
