    I have some brown OEGB hens. I thought they were all BBRs but as they are getting older I noticed that one is a different patterned brown. Can anyone tell me which is the BBR and what the other one would be?

    I don't think it's a quail. Looking at pictures of them, they have alot more black on them than my pullet has. They seem to be almost laced in black and my pullet lookes lighter on the edges of her feathers instead of darker and she doesn't have any black in her tail at all.
    Would a blue red hen be different colored than a BBR hen?

    I recieved some hens identical to yours from Ideal 8 weeks ago! I was wondering the same thing, we were pondering a BBR OEGB and a Silver Duckwing OEGB?
