    I don’t know if they gave us a Guinea or an Easter Egger. They told us it was an Easter Egger but got me worried when I called and they said they only had Guineas left. It’s brown one. Thoughts? 1AF0CCD9-DDD7-4C81-9C44-54B1CD3CE6E4.jpeg

    Looks like the standard Easter Egger chicks that hatcheries sell.

    The Easter Egger will only lay one color of egg her entire life. So if you find a blue egg from her don’t expect a pink one from her the next day.
