    I bought an assorted package of colored egg layers this spring, they are now 16 weeks old and going to camp this week.
    The package includes:

    Dixie rainbows
    Production Reds
    Black Sex Link
    Red Sex Link
    White rock ( only one and a hen so not eating her)
    Black Australorps
    Buff Orpingtons
    Delaware ( hen)
    Barred rocks

    Those are the ones I ID'd. The largest number was EE...lucky me,,,,sigh...

    I am wondering has anyone ever marked their packages by breed so they can try the different breeds on the table?

    I plan to do this, so we can see what we like about each breed, or don't like.

    If you have I would appreciate your input as the meat quality and why you think that.
