    I like your chart it helped me a lot i just got five different breeds of chicks i had ordered and i couldn't find all of their egg colors. :)

    Gogetter they are actually at the bottom of the chart after the orginal set up, because of how I set it up, it's hard to add new ones in ahpibetical order. So as a result they tend to end up at the bottom.
