    I know thet EEs come in so many colors, I would love to see some of the variations. I am really happy with how my two turned out. They are both a bit shy and hard to take pictures of that do them justice. Both lay matt green eggs.

    They're very pretty girls! Barbara's collar area reminds me of my Buff Brahma, Caroline.

    Not always, but that is a good indicator.

    Quote:LOL - it takes about 50 pictures snapped for one good one! I will sometimes let the girls out for an hour, and just mess around taking pictures (and ignoring my children who want dinner or help with homework). [​IMG]

    I try to force a flash, even in sunlight, and use the macro setting a lot. Hope that helps!

    Im not sure what this guy is but I googled Easter Egger and have found a few that look just like him. My question would be is he mixed? Any help figuring this out would be great. Thank you
