    Hello!, I've seen that quite a few of you have the most beautiful, golden reddish Easter Eggers and I'm looking to buy a dozen of my own. Here is a picture of what I have in mind:

    Thanks!

    The thing is, with EEs, it seems that no two will be the same if you buy 12. [​IMG] They will all be different colors, shapes, and patterns.

    I've got 4 EEs right now (used to have 6), and only one looks like the pretty bird you're seeking. She came from Meyer Hatchery.

    Eve (the EE) is all the way to the left here. Hope this helps! [​IMG]

    Ditto on the above post. EEs are mixes, so no two will be alike.

    Thanks for the replies. I'd also settle for the reddish EEs like this one:

    So now I just have to narrow down which hatchery will give me the best percentage of red or golden EEs. Also, my next question is this: If I get a gorgeous EE rooster and keep breeding him to my hens, after enough generations will they all have the same color pattern?
