    What are EEs? I keep seeing this abbreviation and cannot figure it out. See, I told you it was a dumb question.

    There are no dumb questions. EEs are Easter Eggers or "mutt" chickens that are Americauna cross/mix. They normally lay blue, green, tan or pink eggs - hence the name Easter Eggers. I have 5 that should start laying any day and am anxious to see if I do indeed get blue or green eggs.

    Easter Egg chickens, they are a mutt version of Araucanas or Ameraucana.
    They lay colord eggs, Pink blue green or brown.

    I guess I can add one more thing,
    <--------The chick outside the happy face cup, in my little animation, is a pretty typical looking EE chick.
