    I rescued 5 chickens and a crappy coop at the last minute, just hours after buying our first 5 chicks. I'm really not sure what exact breeds these are. The lady didn't seem too sure about what she had.

    I'm pretty sure these 4 are all hens.

    You rescued hens, the first 4 are hens, they kind of look like Easter Eggers (maybe Ameraucanas), think I see ear muffs(?) & the slate colored feet. Mr & Mrs Walter, can't make out the breed but looks like they got feathered feet, what color eggs she laying? They're lucky they got you, enjoy...

    That sounds about right! Well at least it looks like you could make your own Olive Eggers :)

    No eggs yet. No matter how hard we squeeze them. Still on first egg watch.

    Looks like you can start an Olive Egger project with those Easter Eggers and Marans.
