    ....what color eggs?

    I have two cochin bantam mixes...and they have the lil beard/muff......if they were mixed with EE's...what color eggs would they lay?

    Quote:do they have pea combs? if they do, then you have about 98% chances they will lay green eggs

    Still trying to figure out what kind of comb they have-the combs are so small I can't really tell.....I was told they were cochin bantys but with the lil beard muffs they have to be mixed. What besides EEs could they be? Favorelles,-anything else? They also have feather legs.

    This pic is taken at an odd angle and makes her look less of a fluff ball then she really is.....but she wants to check out the camera everytime I get close

    you know, they say a chicken will lay eggs f whatever colored egg they hatch. So i fully expected brown eggs out of my orp/amer cross, but she lays a pretty green egg [​IMG]

    Quote:An F1 mix of any brown egger to a true blue egg layer will result in a green egger every single time. If mixing the f1 to another brown laying breed, you would likely still end up with a green egg layer. The further you breed away from blue egg gene you will end up back to brown.

    Quote:Mille Fleur/d'uccle have beards and feathered feet, D'anvers have beards, Polish have beards, Marans have feathered feet, Polish can have beards, brahmas have feathered feet, Silkies have beards and feathered feet...finding out the lineage of a mixed breed is difficult!

    I am going to say that this pullet is unlikely an Easter Egger, she would likely have green legs vs. pure yellow.
