Right now we have four chicks. The two that we thought were EEs, I'm 80% sure that they are something else entirely. One I think is a gold laced wyandotte, her comb looks different than the rest, its sort of flattish looking, while the other three have single combs. The other one I've figured out could be one of several different breeds, so I'm going to give up guessing for awhile until she grows up a bit. Either way, they aren't going to lay green eggs, which was one of the main reasons we got them in the first place. I was talking to my mom about this, and brought out my laptop so she could see pictures of what I think the two might be. Then we started talking, and I showed her mypetchicken.com, where you can get small shipments of chicks, and we'd get what we want, without having to guess out of the bin at the feed store. I showed her pictures of maran eggs, because I think they are stunning, and she agrees. We also like the white plymouth rocks because they are white, but lay brown eggs (neither of us care for white eggs, if we wanted those, we'd just buy them at the grocery store). So I almost had her sold on placing an order from them (even though the marans aren't available until may. that gives us time to build a bigger coop, lol), but she decided that four is enough. She's still dissappointed about not having any green egg layers, though. Any suggestions on how I can convince her that adding a few more isn't a big deal, and that it will be worth it in the long run?
