    My mother in law wants me to get a couple of the breed of bantams that lay pink eggs.

    Any clue what she might be talking about?

    I've looked all over Welp Hatchery's site along with a couple other sites and I don't see a breed called 'Easter Eggers?'

    Salmon Faverolles possibly. They lay a light tan egg that can some times have a pinkish appearance... They are also wonderful birds - mine are always friendly, even my little roos! [​IMG]

    No, not dumb... They should be listed as EE's but aren't.
