    Okay, Okay, I will quit pouting and be excited for the revealing which gives a little excitement to this time of year. Can't wait to find out!

    There are a few chickens that look like those I think, Kloppers. But I'll be danged if I know their differences. And maybe there is no difference other than a fancy name and salesmanship. LOL.

    I think it may be just a common color. If you were squinting they kinda sorta look like ralphie a creamers too a bit. The barred tri coloring

    Creamers have leghorn in them so I think you would get a more colorful blue egg layer..just my guess.

    Yeah was thinking it might add to their egg laying frequency. Basically end up with an EE equivalent cross breed.

    Can you tell that I am thinking about spring breeding/hatching?? :)

    I am giving you all a warning,,,,

    When Coffee tells you her secret, You will all send her sympathy cards, no one has ever been the victim of chicken math as badly as she has..... [​IMG]


    Try to be supportive and get her in CA ( chickens Anonymous) ASAP. She may need chicken diapers too.

    we had some egg-citing news yesterday. I have pullets hatched in June that most had come into laying. Well, we had ordered 2 buff polish to keep my dd's one company (no it isn't working either) but they both laid their first egg yesterday! What are the odds of that happening?! My DDs were so excited they have been waiting since Feb. when we got our first round of chicks for their girls to lay eggs. They could hardly contain themselves! So we have a pretty assortment in the egg carton. All shades of brown, some green/olive and now white. WOOT WOOT
