    ...to answer this. Are the offspring of an easter egger and any other variety of chicken always considered easter eggers from that point going forward? [​IMG] Thanks in advance for any input.

    It depends on who you ask b/c everyone has a different opinion about what makes an easter egger. To me, personally, an EE is any bird that lays a blue/green egg (or a roo that hatches from one), usually with a pea comb and muffs. Some people call birds with pea combs and muffs EEs even if they lay pink/brown eggs, but I don't count those. But, like I said, everyone has a different opinion.

    I agree. It's completely up to opinion since EEs tend to be mixed anyways. I would call a bird an EE if it had green legs and a muff. I'd call it #$^*#& if it laid brown eggs instead of green, because thats what I want out of my EEs!
