    First time posting. My girls are between 6 and 7 weeks old. Does anybody have an idea of what breed the white pullet is? She was supposed to be a buff like the one next to her. Do buffs come in white? I got these birds from a small feed and seed place. I don't really care what she is as long as she lays, I'm just curious.

    [​IMG]Her legs are kind of green. Here's a better face pic. Also, I have 4 girls that are brown/red like the one in the second picture. They are supposed to be Easter eggers. I didn't realize they could come in so many colors.[​IMG]

    Easter eggers are generally mutt chickens. They should have Americana in their background somewhere so they lay colored eggs but some are now laying brown eggs unfortunately. So whatever a breeder or hatchery wants in the mix can go into them. Some no longer have muffs and some don't have green legs anymore. Looks like you have a couple of Easter eggers. A white one should be pretty as an adult.

    Hatchery sourced Easter Eggers aren't really mixed breeds, and they don't have Ameraucana in their pedigree. It's the Ameraucana that were derived from Easter Eggers.

    They white one is really pretty. My daughter named her Pinkie and is telling everyone she will lay pink eggs. Maybe she's right.

    He told me they'd lay olive green eggs, could they lay blue eggs. Could he really know? I'm hoping for a mix of green and blue.
