    I would have to look them all up, but I think only 7 or 8. I know black, blue, and wheaten. Splash is not recognized.
    Ravyn?

    How old were they SC? How old can a cockerel be before the testosterone starts to ruin the flavor?

    Yes the barred EE project he was working on for autosexing EEs. Not sure if I will continue the project or just add the colored egg layers to my egg production run. Bought the eggs on a whim on the 24hr auction. There is some wheaton in the mix messing up the autosexing project and I'm not sure if I have the space or love of the project to continue it.

    They are much bigger now. I need to get some new pics.
