My youngest daughter and I are curious, we would like to know who, in this community, has, or, are thinking about getting EE's just for their wide range of colors, and would it be a better selection if EE's were ordered from more than one place, as probably different crosses would be used, in your selecting them....I already know the reason for colored eggs. I ask about birds. My DD has informed me a few nights ago, she wants EE's..........for the pretty eggs..........I would like to know about - b r o o d i n e s s - in EEs, does it depend on each hen's genetic make-up? I refuse to get into the incubator trap with the some of you ! I need hens that will "work" and "not slack in the setting department", and the wide range of colors, since this will be a joint venture for both of us.
