    There aren't different "breeds" of easter eggers. They all feather out in wild colorations too, so it's hard to gauge color from chick to adult. I've had dark red chicks feather out into primarily white adults with crazy colors in the hackle, saddle, and tail. It's all part of the fun of having them. [​IMG]

    Exactly what Cuban Longtails said. There aren't 'breeds' of EE's, only different color patterns. It's really hard to tell what you have until they are a few weeks older, but you will not be disappointed with whatever you get, believe me [​IMG]
