    I'll second that. Hope they were not sold to you as purebreds.

    No no, my sister in law picked them up for me. I told her i wanted green eggs layers. So the guy that she bought them from said they would most likely be green layers? Umm.. could they be americana mixed? I dont know. I just hope they are pullets
