    what kind of chickens am I going to get and what color eggs will they lay? I've got a ton of hens and 2 brown leghorn roos. I'm going to put the brown leghorn hens in a cage today so I can gather their eggs but I was thinking I might leave some EEs in there too.

    Will these chickens be hideous or cute or what?
