    Will all EE chickens earlobes be red? I have heard earlobes can determine egg color.
    Mine seem to have all red earlobes.
    Will their eggs be brown?
    Their legs seem to be a greenish/slate color.

    I think they are just the exception to the rule. But even within the "easter egger" category there seems to be a lot of variance in the shade and colors they produce.

    Ive heard the pea comb gene goes hand in hand with the blue egg gene...one copy of the blue egg gene gives green eggs to my understanding
