    1st - from all you can tell from the photo:

    How many pullets and cockerals in the BLRW group?

    Not the best photo for this purpose, I'm sure. . .

    Then these hens:

    I can see one definite cockerel in the photo (could be 2) above and I think they are Easter eggers, though I'm not an expert in those breeds, having never kept them before [​IMG]

    Looks like two BLRW roos, and the rest pullets- the other two birds are definitely EEs.

    Quote:If it is sold at a hatchery, feedstore, or local person who doesn't know that EE's are different from Ameraucanas, it's an EE. [​IMG]

    If it has green legs, yellow legs, or lays green or brown eggs, it's an EE.

    If it is not a recognized Ameraucana color, it is an EE. [​IMG]
