    They where suppose to be Easter Eggers but they don't really look like anyone else's. I also bought a silver laced Cochin , but she turned out to be a Blue Cochin so now I'm wondering if these guys are something wise too ? [​IMG]

    You are correct--those are not Easter Eggers. Instead, they are beautiful Welsummer hens that will probably lay some nice dark brown eggs for you.

    Hummmm I have been getting a small dark brown egg. I was thinking maybe it was my Blue Cochrin. I bet it's one of these two !

    They are !!! I just went and looked at that breed. That's exactly what they look like :) and I'm glad to hear people say they become more friendly as they get older. They have been the most skittish chickens I have !
