    Hi,
    I just received some O.E.B's yesterday. My question is can you tell by the color of the chick what breed of O.E.B they are? For example here are the four colors I have.

    Out of the thirty two they sent only nineteen made it.... So far!
    here are the indavidual colors:
    I have 6 of these

    I am thinking the top ones could be black breasted red, the silver one could be self blue. I'm no expert though.

    I love OEGB's I have one self blue hen right now and she is so sweet, I have some of her eggs under a broody, can't wait till next month.

    What colors was available from the place you got them from?

    Pic. 1 might be Black Breasted Red.
    Pic. 2 might be Black
    Pic. 3 might be Splash, Porcelain or Self Blue
    Pic. 4 might be Pearl or Cream

    OE have a lot of color that are smiler in color as chicks and ever more so if they came form a hatchery.
