    I am planning on ordering a few EE pullets this spring. I've noticed a lot of variation in the pics on BYC of hatchery EEs. Who has the prettiest or best looking Easter Eggers and which hatchery has the largest EEs? Pics would be great!

    you really don't know what your gonna get with EE's since they are mixed. I think any hatchery would do~

    I realize that there is going to be a lot of variation since they are EEs, but I have noticed some pics in the past of some really pretty birds. I especially like those with a little blue coloring in them. I have a few EE hens from Mt. Healthy that are good green-egg layers- but they're not the most attractive girls in the coop.

    I'm disappointed in a couple of my EEs... I was hoping for green egg layers... and got light cream and tan with two of them.

    Thanks, I ordered him a girl but as you can see that did not turn out to be true. [​IMG]
    Also all three girls lay green eggs.(don't have a picture of the third but she looks a lot like the girl in the 1st picture)

    I have a splash ameraucana roo in with some black marans and a brownred (black with red tinted head and breast) turken hen. ALL the babies are guaranteed to hatch out blue or blue based. All the ones hatched out so far also had beards and pea combs, which means they should lay green eggs. Because of the marans breeding, the eggs will be deep mossy green most likely.
