I don’t think EE are just mutts. They are mixed, so they aren’t technically a breed, but they are still chickens. When you love them, who cares about the breed?

In my book they are
It’s kinda hard to explain but bare with me:
Just to be clear I am going off the fact that you read my article on the topic, I posted the link when I made this thread.
At the beginning Easter Eggers* were a specific strain with lineage coming from Chile. What I’m talking about in this thread is those Easter Eggers. Not the mixes and hybrids of today. There is nothing wrong with calling your mixes EEs as nowadays that’s what an EE is. Originally though, they were their own specific thing.
*at the time they were not called Easter Eggers
