    Good morning all.
    Any help on gender? I know we have 2 RIR, 1BO but I dont know what breed the little grey one is and the one with the feathers on the side of the face?
    Thanks for your help,

    Looks like a beautiful Easter Egger pullet (sometimes called Ameraucana but the true Ameraucana has limitations on color etc. and is a breed that is judged by poultry judges to say how it should look).

    She should lay green or blue (sometimes brown or other colors) eggs.

    Does your pretty grey hen have feathered legs? If so, I believe she's a blue cochin. Very nice.

    Your second bird is an easter egger pullet. High probability for blue or green eggs!

    My bantam cochins lay dark cream colored eggs.

    I think she's going to be quite the beauty! I love cochins, they're so fluffy and regal looking, especially the large ones. Someday, someday I'll live where there isn't a mud season and have pretty feather footed birds!

    Someday, I too, hopw for no muddy season and my feather-footed breeds will look much less dirty! ;) They are otherwise gorgeous, but oh those muddy and poopy feet...
