    Just got my first pullet egg from a CLBxRIR cross. The pullet on the left is the one that laid this egg. By looking at the OAC chart, this egg comes in as an OAC 60, a very light green.

    For a pullet egg, it came in a decent 1.6 ounces for a first egg. My cream legbars usually start at 1.2-1.3 ounces get larger from there.

    Quote:Nice, I love how the hens look and it seems like the brown was not too strong on the RIR side of the cross

    These could pass as EE. They have the same coloration the beards just moved to the back of their heads

    ive seen hundreds of EE that are that color brown and have the same neck hackle color. Is one of the most common EE colors for hens

    I think it is a hoot to see pictures of my chickens pop up like this!

    Chipmonk was one of the first chicks I hatched. She lays a huge light green egg.

    Here are 2 of my EEs when they were younger. I believe they are wildtype. Very typical female EE coloring.

    LOL that's funny that she is yours. People must love your chickens if they are using them as examples :)
