    Since Easter Eggers are essentially mutts to begin with, if you hatch eggs from a purebred rooster mated with Easter Eggers....are the chicks still considered Easter Eggers?

    yep, I think so. Easter eggers are defined as a mutt that has the potential to produce a green/blue egg I believe.

    I agree with Kari. As long as they lay a blue/ green egg they should still be considered EE

    Yup, but remember that not all Easter-eggers lay blue or green eggs. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yep, I knew that, cuuz I have one that does. I was basically just curious about the name of what the baby would be, liike if its even necessary to say the daddy was a purebred. Dos that make sense?
