    Traded with my neighbor- I got 4 hens & 2 roosters. They are EE's. one roo has the black beard the other doesnt. The roo's & the two redish browns hens were all from the same clutch/hatch. Her hen layed 11 under porch & hatched all even though it was very HOT summer!Any idea what breeds they could be mixed from?

    well thats the thing with ee's they are a mix that lays a colored egg. With them being a mutt, they can look like anything [​IMG]

    What other breeds does your neighbor have? That would narrow things down.

    They didn't know breed. Only one small pen/coop. The only birds 10 or so were all offspring of hen & roo they didn't have anymore due to predator. This is the other girl I got from them. Obviously another EE. She layed her 1st egg today. It is blue!

    I saw a post in "animals in need of a new home"
    with a picture of an(Americauna)rooster that looked almost exactly like my two boys.
