    Hi--my daughter received 3 chickens form her cousin to get her started with her dream of raising and showing chickens and we are not sure of the breeds of any of them.....Please help! Thanks!

    Here are pics of the hen. She has a green "iridescent" coloring on top of the black (not showing in pic too well) They said she is 2 yrs old. She lays light green eggs.

    Here are pics of one rooster. His Tail feathers have the same green "iridescent" coloring as the hen's. He is supposed to be 2 yrs old, too.

    Here is the 2nd rooster. He has feather feet and is supposed to be 8-10 months old.

    Yep yep.... Easter eggers are so much fun! You can't really show them but I would breed them for their colored eggs. They are very nice sweet chickens and are great for kids!

    Thanks for everyone's help in determining the breeds....I don't know much about that yet, but have been researching online & was kinda leaning towards EE -- wasn't sure about the little roo. He doesn't have much "fluff", will that fill in more as he gets older?
