    I just added the Sebrights, there still getting acquainted. I am sure i will have to get rid of a rooster or 2, there's 3 and the one with the girls is the dominant one.

    Nice Easter Egger bantams. [​IMG]

    Pretty little Sebrights though. Always loved them, either gold or silver.

    I purchased them from a local breeder who called them americauna. I really couldnt tell you the difference between them and easter eggers. All i know is they lay green/blue eggs and one lays pink eggs. I don't know the difference between the 2 kinds. Neither is a pure breed and as far as i am concerned a mutt is a mutt. I just wanted colored eggs.

    And you got em. [​IMG]

    You're on the lucky side, honestly. My only EE hen is a typical brown color with black pencilling and if she ever lays, it's a light brown egg. My EE pullet is a pretty white girl, but she's 6 months old now and has yet to give me an egg. All I know is that it should be pale in color and should be either blue, green, or olive green.

    The anticipation is killing me.

    They're adorable! I'm a sucker for the little beards and muffs some chickens have. [​IMG] I love that one red/blue hen that's towards the middle of the pic.

    Quote:Do all the brown colored ones lay brown eggs? If the lighter colored one's lay light colored eggs, anyone have a guess at what color a black EE (the only one I have at the moment) would lay? I'm assuming she's an EE since the guy I bought her from said she was an Araucana mix.

    It's not the color of the chicken that determines egg color, it's earlobe color. White earlobes = white eggs, and red earlobes = brown, blue, or green. I know there is one exception to this rule, but I can't remember what it is.

    Thanks. Now, at least I know I won't be getting white eggs. I guess I'll just cross my fingers for the blue, though green would be cool as well. Watch me end up with my one lone EE laying brown eggs. [​IMG] At least I'll still have her fluffy little beard to admire, even if she does lay brown eggs. :lol:lol
