    I have 3 BO hens and they are so much more fuller and squattier than these. These seem to have the right buff coloring, but seem sleeker and don't have such a pronounced rear end. What do you think? Or are they something different than a BO or EE?

    They're BO's. Some birds take longer to fill out than others. [​IMG]

    I would say BO, could be the difference in stock that account for differences.
    Why do you think they might be easter egger?

    The legs looks like they have the greenish-greyish tint of an EE, but it could just be the light.

    The legs are white. My only thought about if they were EE is because the gal that I bought them from seemed to think that they were. I guess she had a lot of them that she bought from a hatchery. I have two of these little buff girls and they are always with the two EE...that foursome never gets more than about 2 feet from each other...it is funny. I am trying to figure out what all of mine are so that I can make a nice little signature...no other reason. I am not going to breed any, I am not selling them and to be honest...I am being impatient and can't wait for them to start laying. heheheh

    Hatchery quality can vary quite a bit. They are still young and WILL fill out some more, but will most likely never be as round and fluffy as a SQ breeder bird. [​IMG]
