    TWO THINGS 1. Are these even easter eggers , theyre not mine theyre my grandmothers . The guy she got them from said they were easter eggers. I dunno they dnt lay colored eggs .
    2. Then hen in the top picture has a chick the one in the bottom picture doesnt but one of them is laying eggs but the one with the chick was the only that had layed eggs (so far) so would she still be laying eggs with a chick or would the other hen be laying eggs ? The rooster continues to "mount" the hens to you know but I dont no which one hes mateing wiht cause they look the same .

    They do not look like EE to me. Most likely the hen with the small chick is not laying eggs right now.
