    This is "Cocoa" I am not sure what she is. I got quite an assortment and not sure what breed she is. Very friendly and my favorite.....

    Top looks like an Easter Egger, not sure about the white, I don't think it is a leghorn at least.

    Top one is a beautiful Easter Egger. I have one that looks exactly like yours by mine has more of a beard. They could be twins! I think we win the look a like contest.

    She's 11 weeks old, her name is Hottie:

    Yes, they are EE's, we have two just like them. They are great birds and good pets. Ours aren't laying yet, I can't wait to see what color of eggs they lay.

    Ditto on the Easter Eggers. Mine were sold to me as Aracaunas (sp?) but quickly grew tails and beards and muffs so I know they are Americaunas (sp?) at best, mixed Easter Eggers at worst. Hopefully will get some beautiful blue eggs. Here's a pic with more that could be twins of those already posted - or quints? I also have a white one but it is the only one without a beard. They are 8 weeks old.
