    thanks for the help, i figured the first one was a buff orpington since i just saw a picture of one :), and why do they call them Easter Egger's, we figured it was a type of bantom

    They are called Easter eggers because of the egg color. blue teal and some times pinkish. I don't believe it is a bantam.

    They call it an Easter Egger because they are known to lay coloured eggs. From blue - to green - to pink - to brown, or even tinted (almost white).

    She is a standard. EEs are a small standard.
