    Recently we took in over 30 chickens of mixed breed. I really need help identifying some of them. I do know at least one of the breeds is giving me a true blue egg.

    None of the birds above should be laying blue eggs.

    The center bird is probably your blue egg layer--a Cream Legbar.

    @GoldenChicks16 I am seeing a bunch of roos here. You may need to consider getting rid of some of the roos. A ball-park ratio is 1 roo to 8 hens.

    Too many roos is streesful for the flock. Hens will be fought over and over-bred, and fighting can get fierce.

    Agree on the above--OEG, buff Orp, mixed breed rooster, crested cream Legbar pullet. That last one may not be a "correct" color for the breed, but I'm pretty sure she's your blue egg layer unless you have obvious Ameraucanas or EE.

    @TaraBellaBirds we have over 100 hens, just rounded these up for ID confirmation.

    @TaraBellaBirds Very much so! However it does work out as we sell eggs to an organic reteraunt near us.
