    My friend, who hatched them, does know what breeds the person has that she got them from. She had green, white and brown eggs, but none of the green eggs hatched. She doesn't know if these came from the white or brown eggs( I also have 4 red/buff chicks from same hatch). I'm guessing he's a cross of silver laced and blue? I was thinking they might have a ee/amer/araucana dad, since no green eggs hatched, and most likey a white egg mom(s) (the others look like buff orps).

    The first one may have had an EE dad but the other two are probably mixed with something else due to their single combs. Very cute birds! You should ask your friend what breeds she has to help us out. [​IMG]

    She probably has an Easter Egger in there and doesn't know it.
