    I figure 2 are Rhode island reds, or production reds, and the other 4 are EE's ? Got this mix from a few gals who gave me there fertile eggs. any help would be great. I know its way to young to sex, but at least maybe I can know the breeds LOL
    thanks much
    The one gal had these white chickens with brown spots, weird looking as she had so many mixes. looked like leghorns with rhode island red lol. an d she had some ee mixes. so not sure what the heck I have here. the other gal had rhode island reds , bard rocks and light brahmas so Im not sure what the heck I have here. would be great if any of you could help me. again thanks.

    You have it right, though the 2 RIRs are probably production reds :)

    Thank you, I appreciate it. We are keeping 2 and giving The rest to a good home. We also have 2 light brahma chicks under another broody, we will be giving them away to though I hate to as I love my one light brahma who lays very well. But the broody is not a good mama, with the two brahma chicks,
    today one died as she did not retrieve it. The other chicken with the 6 chicks is an amazing mama . She has hatched out 2 sets now and she is worth her weight in gold!
    Looking forward to blue eggs ! I have a ameraucana mixed with a rhode island who gives me olive eggs .blue will be awesome!
