My 4 year old son and i just got into raising chicks last year. We live on a horse/hobby farm and wanted some eggs. Was not expecting that we would have this much fun. Being that I have never raised chickens before I had no idea what to get. We ended up getting 7 from our local farm store. 1 buff orington,2 black astrolaps,3 gold stars or Rhode island Reds(not really sure) and 1 Barred rock. We love them all. Well this year, my son saw some blue/green eggs in a magazine and begged that we could get some that lay that color eggs.I told him as long as they were cold hardy (we live in MN). So off we went. We got to the store and asked the guy working if they had any chicks that would lay those eggs. They advertised them as Arucanas. But after looking at this site I think I have EEs.A little help by you experts would be appreciated. I also got a little bit of the chick fever at the store and ended up getting 4 EEs or whatever they are. 3 Rhode Island Reds to clear up the Gold Star,Rhode Island Red debate. 3 yellow buffs and 3 barred rocks cause those are my wife's favorities! We have quite the flock now and cant wait to see if we end up getting colored eggs! Also if it helps the chicks have a greenish leg to them?
