    Anyone know if you would get a good assortment of colors. I don't want all brown.

    These have been the nicest, most colorful birds I've seen in EEs, and the eggs have generally been a really rich blue, with some greens. I've never had one that didn't lay colored.

    We've only had three EE girls from there. Two lay green, one lays brown. Two of them have the typical partridgy brown EE feather color, one is a very cool white/black/brown mix.

    Get some Welsummers too, our Welsummer girl from Estes is a very faithful layer of beautiful big spotted brown eggs!
