    I thought Easter eggers lay different color eggs? Her eggs are light brown. Maybe she is mixed with ER

    She looks like an Easter Egger to me, too. The definition of an Easter Egger is that they lay colored eggs. While most lay blue, green, or pink eggs, some will lay basic brown eggs.

    She may have an EE parent mixed with a brown egger parent, or she may simply be a poor hatchery stock EE. You can call her an EE or a mixed breed bird. Nothing else stands out as a contributing breed.

    You'll love having her. We've got three EE's who look fairly similar to one another in coloring. One lays brown eggs; one lays blue eggs; one lays green eggs. They've got great chickenalities, too.
