    There is one way you can but you'd have to look very carefully at them. If they have greenish tint legs that indicates they might be an Easter Egger, because they lay green eggs. This is what I heard, but it might not work with all of Easter eggers.

    There was a time I thought only genetic lines for the industry existed...

    I second that....even though she looks off of the breed standard.


    For reference: this is what buff orps are supposed to look like:
