    I don't have a contact number for the lady who sold me my eggs as she was a friends neighbour. She gave me a mix of eggs if mixed breeds. She wrote on the eggs I'm assuming to identify possible mixes but I'm not sure. A couple also say "1st" and I don't know why. Can anyone decipher these for me?[​IMG]
    I am pretty sure the I is Orpington and the m is maran but I'm not sure. Some if the eggs are very chocolatey. There are some green eggs but some say o/e and one says mixed americauna.

    The B/O is probably Buff Orpington and the O/E is probably Olive Egger. Maybe the 1st on them could mean they are a 1st generation breeding project or from a first generation breeding project? [​IMG]
