    EE is pretty much any Ameraucana cross & can lay blue, green, pink, purple or brown. OE is an Ameraucana or EE crossed with a chocolate egger (marans, wellie, etc.) to produce the darker green/khaki colored eggs. Rainbow layers come when you mix a flock of brown, blue, green, olive, chocolate, etc. layers & get a wide assortment of colors such as in my ad for Rainbow Layer eggs. They could lay just about ANY color.

    Depends entirely on your chicken math skills [​IMG]

    Whenever he's to the weight you want him to be, younger means more tender [​IMG]

    Time for a wire cover on the brooder. It only gets worse. [​IMG]

    Sounds like maybe the wild geese ganged up on him.

    So sorry to hear... [​IMG] I don't know enough about normal duck or geese activities to offer any insight on what may have happened if you can't find any bruising or broken bones.
    Again, so sorry...

    Sounds like poor thing drowned. That will happen if they are held under water for too long by another bird on their back trying to mate them or fight them.

    I say plan for at LEAST an hour at that pet place! I can spend an hour alone in the fish room and touch tank! Lol but then again, I dream of the day I can have a saltwater reef tank... Maybe when I retire... 40 years from now!
