My roo, is a Cochran, my hens consist of ( thank you to everyone here who helped me id them) A golden laced polish, 4 EE, A delaware, a Barred Rock, RIR, Silver-Laced Wyandotte and a Black Australorp. The new chicks are RIR , EE and another Wyandotte I Believe. And as god is my witness I will find one of those chocolate egg layers The EE that are laying are giving me light greenish eggs with a slight blue tent and I am getting brown from the rest. I dont think the polish has laid yet as I have not found any white eggs. The question: Since my roo is the Cochran, if I get a broody hen what the heck would I end up with chick and egg wise from my group. I guess what I need to know is do I let her hatch what she wants , or should I use a brooody hen (when I get one) to hatch replacement eggs I buy off here. I'm just looking for eggs from my ladies, not meat.... as it sits now they will die of a ripe old age rather then stew pot (no heart for that).
