    That was what I was leaning toward. So correction, 2 of the tans are mysteries! Probably 2 extra Easter Eggers. Still wondering about the 3rd Blue though.

    I ordered 7 rare and got one that looks like one of yours and I still can't figure out what it is.

    Oh, sorry. Duh! This is my first time using a forum, so my learning curve is showing.
    The coloring is similar to a Wheaten Marans, but she's clean shanked. Aren't all Marans feather shanked?

    No I think they can be clean legged also. I don't think Meyer carries Wheaten Marans do they?

    Nope... was thinking maybe its an experimental coloring not listed yet. Or i'm totally off. was my only solid guess. Second is the default of EE. Third is maybe a Speckled Sussex? Just doesn't seem so, though.

    Not an Easter Egger. I was hoping swedish flower or jubilee orpington. I don't see anything else they could be. Time will tell though. [​IMG]
