  1. Chipmunk is a regular size chicken, unlike the hawk looking ones i posted in another thread(they are tiny)

    She hasn't laid any eggs yet i got her with the two hawk colored ones and a black hen back in September

    She's an Easter Egger.
     
  5. So they come in two sizes? Large and small?

    Easter Eggers can be large (standard sized) or small (bantams). Large fowl are most common, though.

    Did she come from a hatchery or breeder? To me, she looks like she had one hatchery EE parent, and one parent was another breed, something heavier and possibly straight combed. My hens with that same kind of funky comb laid colored eggs, but it's a crapshoot when you mix green and brown parents if the offspring will lay green or brown.
     
  9. I dont know where she came from as a chick, i bought her in September from a couple who live at the jersey shore i drove 3 hours to get her, the black one and the two grey ones
