    OK, on another thread about green eggs someone suggested that I share pics and you all can identify them. I tried this earlier before they were fully grown and it didn't work too well but now that they are laying like crazy I need to know who is laying what. These are 9 y/o DS's chickens. We are getting white, light brown, very dark brown, green (like turquoise) and now a very light bluish green (that one was a monster!).

    I'm going to put one in each post and number them so you can identify them. We have more but the battery in my camera died.

    ETA: If they have dirty backs, sorry. My roos are very good at their jobs.

    I think #1 is an Egyptian Fayoumi. It looks just like the pics i've seen.

    I think #7 is an Ameraucana. It's even got the green legs.

    I don't know about the rest. [​IMG]

    Those are my best guesses, let's see what others have to say...
