    Hey everyone. This is my first post but I've been hovering around the forum for a while. I have a question. Here is some background info. I bought four freshly hatched chicks in May, and now all four are laying eggs. They are four different breeds which are: 1. White Leghorn 2.Black Sexlink 3.Ameraucana, and 4 is supposed to be a Rhode Island Red. Everything seems normal except for the 4th chick, Rhode Island Red which we named "Roadie."
    Roadie looked like a Rhode Island Red Chick except her wings looked a little white/yellow. As she grew, she bacame a very bright white chicken, no color at all! And she had greenish legs. She just started laying about a week or so ago, and her eggs are blue/green, similar to my Ameraucana. She lays about an egg a day. She has a fluffy face, (beard) and like a walnut looking comb. Also, she is the largest Hen. Can anyone help me identify her? I bought all four breeds from the same source, at the same time. If anyone has experienced this, let me know. Here's some pictures.

    That's why I love Easter eggers, they come in all different colors and give you such pretty eggs!
