    Hello,
    I wanted to buy some eggs, and im not sure about how the lady described them. She says that there are two seperate pens of OEGB and one pen contains BB Red Rooster and silver and golden duckwing hens, and the other pen says that it has a fawn and red pyle hen with a blue breasted red roo. Does that mean I shouldn't buy these eggs if i want to show them? Could I still get recognized colors our of these breedings? Thank You:)

    No they won't.

    There will be several different colors hatch from this one batch of eggs.
    But a bird is not judged on where his color came from. Just show them as the color they are, whenever they are grown.

    From the first pen you will get bbred hens, and gold duckwing roosters.
    I dont understand this "a fawn and red pyle hen" is that two different hens, or what? Fawn and Red Pyle are two different things, some folks dont know the difference.

    the second pen has a fawn duckwing hen and a different red pyle hen with a red/blue rooster, so does that mean if i want to show them they will be showable as far as the standard, or will they all be a mix of the color of whatever the hen and rooster are?
